Western Kid #10 - Al Williamson art


Western Kid v1 #10, 1956 - A young cowboy shows off his precision shooting skills for the crowd's entertainment. Despite being only four pages, the tale is told in uncommonly large panels. Al Williamson's loose yet carefully designed drawings may have been inked by frequent collaborator Angelo Torres (?). Curiously, the last page employs more fine lines and cross-hatching, a noticeable change from the heavy blacks on previous pages. Fortunately, the inconsistency is only mildly distracting. This story was later reprinted in Wyatt Earp v5 #30. Other artists this issue include John Romita and Joe Maneely (cover). This is number 2 of 2 Western Kid issues with Williamson art and/or covers.
