Gunsmoke Western #36 - Al Williamson art



Gunsmoke Western v1 #36, 1956 - An infamous outlaw arrives in a small frontier town, upsetting the local residents. Like much of Al Williamson's work for Atlas, the story is brief and succinct. The large panel on the opening page draws readers in with fine details. The layout and pacing are effective, especially toward the end where silhouetted figures build to a climax, revealing the outlaw's face. Other artists in this issue include Gene Colan and Joe Maneely (cover). This is number 3 of 5 Gunsmoke Western issues with Williamson art and/or covers.

  1. This cover art is by Joe Maneely. His signature is in the bottom left by the wagon wheel.
