Kid Colt Outlaw #59 - Al Williamson art

Kid Colt Outlaw v1 #59, 1956 - Searching for gold in the mountains, an old prospector hopes to turn around his outlaw son. Al Williamson's gestural drawings bring an immediacy to the tale. Quick strokes and cross hatching add texture and interest. Some details are lacking on the opening panel, but overall Williamson mostly meets expectations. Other artists in this issue include Jack Keller and John Severin (cover).This is number 4 of 8 Kid Colt Outlaw issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Kid Colt Outlaw issues. See also this blog's Williamson checklist.

  2. Severin did some nice work. My personal favorites were his 1970s runs on Kull and Our Fighting Forces.
