Two-Gun Western v2 #9 - Al Williamson art


Two-Gun Western v2 #9, 1957 - Excitedly anticipating a shootout, a young boy narrates a confrontation between two of the best gunfighters west of the Mississippi. Aside from the opening scene (see interior page below), Al Williamson mostly populates the tale with small, varied panels. His reliably drawn pencils are further refined by Ralph Mayo's inks. Faces and figures have more definition, while maintaining fine details in the backgrounds. Their combined artistic effort, as usual, has unerring appeal. Other artists in this issue include Gray Morrow, Joe Maneely, Doug Wildey, Dick Ayers and Jay Scott Pike (art & cover). This is number 1 of 2 Two-Gun Western v2 issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Two-Gun Western issues. See also this blog's Williamson checklist.
