Two-Gun Western v2 #12 - Jack Kirby art


Two-Gun Western v2 #12, 1957 - An ordinary bronco buster must take on a seasoned gunfighter, for the sake of his town and the girl he loves. Jack Kirby's graphically distinctive style is used more subtly in this quaint western tale. Many of the backgrounds are line drawings, bringing most of the attention to the characters. Kirby is also not above using an oddly shaped panel here and there to break up otherwise monotonous layouts. His carefully designed panels reinforce his strong sense of visual storytelling. Other artists in this issue include Reed Crandall, Sid Greene, Carmine Infantino and Bill Everett (cover). This is number 1 of 1 Two-Gun Western v2 issues with Kirby art and/or covers.
