Uncle Scrooge #50 - Carl Barks art & cover


Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge #50, 1964 - Uncle Scrooge and the gang travel to Bagdad (their spelling) and encounter flying rugs, treasures, and their sorceress foe Magica De Spell. Carl Barks revels in the story's Middle Eastern setting, nicely delineating the culture's architecture and design motifs. His opening splash, with its intricate rug patterns, establishes the tale's exotic mood. This is 50 of 70 Uncle Scrooge issues with Barks art and/or covers (not including reprints).

Two-Gun Kid #51 - Al Williamson art


Two-Gun Kid #51, 1959 - An ex-convict seeks revenge on a judge in this old western tale. Al Williamson's opening page depicts the criminal's furor at the judges ruling, his body struggling against the two bailiffs. The artist's style contemporary gives the story a cinematic look, greatly contrasting against other genre artwork of the era. John Severin contributes a tensely composed cover as well. This story has been reprinted in Mighty Marvel Western #37. This is number 3 of 3 Two-Gun Kid issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Two-Gun Kid issues.
