Rawhide Kid #7 - Al Williamson art


Rawhide Kid v1 #7, 1956 - Fearful of a massive indian attack, a man abandons his town to save his own life. In this brief Al Williamson tale, the drawings are quite loose, sometimes lacking clarity in the smaller details. An exception is the opening panel, a wide view of the coward galloping through the woods. The background is an idyllic picture of nature, complete with cascading waterfall. The rider's face is darkened, perhaps suggesting his shameful behavior. This story was later reprinted in Outlaw Kid v2 #28 and Western Kid v2 #3. Other artists in this issue include Dick Ayers. This is number 1 of 1 Rawhide Kid issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Rawhide Kid issues. See also this blog's Williamson checklist.
