Six-Gun Western #2 - Al Williamson art


Six-Gun Western v1 #2, 1957 - A gang of thieves escapes a posse, leading them to a much-rumored ghost town. Al Williamson's drawing skills are impeccable, allowing just enough detail to enhance the storytelling. His depicting the thieves jumping over a chasm (page one, panel two) is small, yet maintains depth and clarity. Like other Williamson stories from the same era, a keen sense of realism pervades most of the artwork. Other artists in this issue include Joe Orlando, Mac Pakula, Christopher Rule, Syd Shores and Joe Maneely (cover). This is number 2 of 3 Six-Gun Western issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Six-Gun Western issues. See also this blog's Williamson checklist.
