Wild Western #54 - Al Williamson art


Wild Western v1 #54, 1956 - A cattle rustler imposes upon the hospitality of his brother, much to the dismay of the wife. Al Williamson's opening panel is rather tame, but remaining pages tell the tale with grit and brevity. Toward the end, a surprising twist is framed in an amorphous shape, heightening the scene's tension. Ralph Mayo's inks add polish and clarity to the pencils.  In the same issue, Williamson provides two small text illustrations inked by Angelo Torres. Other artists in this issue include Jack Keller, Dick Ayers, Syd Shores, Angelo Torres, Fred Kida and Joe Maneely (cover). This is number 2 of 3 Wild Western issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Wild Western issues. See also this blog's Williamson checklist.
