Wyatt Earp #2 - Al Williamson art


Wyatt Earp v1 #2, 1956 - After gunning down his enemies, a trigger-happy cowboy faces an unexpectedly cool and collected U.S. marshal. Al Williamson's drawings are bold and kinetic, augmented by halftone screens and loose, painterly backgrounds. The combined effect results in darkly lit scenes of superb quality (see interior page below). Other artists in this issue include Joe Maneely, Norman Maurer and  John Severin (cover). This is number 1 of 4 Wyatt Earp issues with Williamson art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Williamson or Wyatt Earp issues.
