Quick-Trigger Western #16 - Jack Kirby art

Quick-Trigger Western v1 #16, 1957 - An indian chief signs a peace pact with the white community, while malicious gunrunners plan to derail it for their own profit. Jack Kirby, in his only artwork for the series, does a terrific job. His distinctive style fills a variety of panel shapes that brings additional interest. Kirby perfectly captures the ferocity of riders on the warpath on page 2 panel 2, even extending their figures into surrounding panels. The story inks look familiar, quite possibly by longtime partner Joe Simon. Other artists in this issue include Gene Colan, Joe Orlando, Jay Scott Pike and John Severin (cover). This is number 1 of 1 Quick-Trigger Western issues with Kirby art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kirby or Quick-Trigger Western issues. See also this blog's Kirby checklist.
