Gunsmoke v2 #12 - Al Williamson art

Gunsmoke v2 #12, 1958 - The last of Al Williamson's work on the series, "The Elusive Luke McGlue" is his best effort of them all. Short in story length and devoid of much action, the artwork nonetheless shows a mastery of line and brushwork. The first two pages display a multitude of character faces and figures (see interior page below), drawn with great clarity and confidence. Overall, Williamson's inks are sharp and crisp, more cleanly delineating his superb pencils. This is number 5 of 5 Gunsmoke issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Gunsmoke issues. See also this blog's Al Williamson checklist.
