Two-Gun Western v2 #11 - Al Williamson art


Two-Gun Western v2 #11, 1957 - A gunfighter uses trickery to outdraw his opponents, only to find his own tactics used against him. Al Williamson's drawings are tighter and more polished than usual, aided by uncommonly large panels. The linework on the shaded figures and faces are more detailed and carefully implemented. The artist's arresting opening splash captures the exact moment of a gunfighter's death, his gun propelled in mid-air by the blast. Williamson drew many westerns in the 1950s, but this issue stands out from the pack. Other artists in this issue include Bob Powell, Marvin Stein and Joe Maneely (cover). This is number 2 of 2 Two-Gun Western v2 issues with Williamson art and/or covers.
