Weird Western Tales #45 - Jim Starlin cover

Jim Starlin
Weird Western Tales #45 featuring Scalphunter, 1978 - Bat Lash, an earlier DC western hero, meets the savage Scalphunter for the first time. Unlike his previous cover on this series, Jim Starlin gives readers the more gripping scene of the hero under fire during a moonlit night. Nicely done is the clear hierarchy between the title character and supporting figures. Note how the oversized moon echoes the circular opening below. Other artists in this issue include Dick Ayers and George Evans. This is number 2 of 2 Weird Western issues with Starlin art and/or covers.
