Wild Western #55 - Al Williamson art

Wild Western v1 #55, 1957 - An unscrupulous pair conspires to hypnotize the town sheriff, making him helpless during a robbery. More detail and contrast than usual fill this Al Williamson tale (see interior page below). Most impressive is the opening panel of a gunfight in progress. The large imposing scene is made more spacious by an open frame format, outlined only by town buildings. Other artists in this issue include Jack Keller, Joe Sinnott, Frank Bolle, Fred Kida, Joe Maneely and John Severin (cover). This is number 3 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.
