Outlaw Kid #8 - Al Williamson art

Outlaw Kid v1 #8, 1955 - A US marshal commits to bringing in a young gunslinger called the Hawk, no matter what the consequences. George Woodbridge's inks tend to dominate Al Williamson's pencils, especially in the various characters' faces. Still, the resulting artwork is not displeasing. Their combined efforts on the opening panel, depicting two men waiting in ambush, is especially rich in texture and detail. This issue was later reprinted in Outlaw Kid v2 #9. Other artists in this issue include Doug Wildey and Joe Maneely (cover). This is number 1 of 4 Outlaw Kid issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Outlaw Kid issues. See also this blog's Williamson checklist.
