Matt Slade Gunfighter #2 - Al Williamson art

Matt Slade Gunfighter v1 #2, 1956 - A tough-looking hombre ambles into a saloon, intent on making trouble. Surprisingly, he's challenged by his quiet and considerably smaller partner. Al Williamson's backgrounds are painterly but a bit too minimalist. Fortunately, this is largely offset by the impressive figure drawing skills he's well known for. This story was later reprinted in Western Gunfighters v2 #18. Williamson would also redraw the same story (with some improvements) several years later in Kid Colt Outlaw #89. Other artists in this issue include Arnold Roth and Joe Maneely (cover). This is number 2 of 2 Matt Slade Gunfighter issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Matt Slade Gunfighter issues. See also this blog's Williamson checklist.
