Western Gunfighters #22 - Wally Wood art


Western Gunfighters v1 #22, 1956 - Failing to prevent a jailbreak, a lowly deputy hunts down the infamous rustler who escaped him. While not as detailed as his other 1950s works, Wally Wood does a capable job on this western tale. Aside from the large opening panel, dramatic lighting and other high contrast techniques bring greater depth to each scene. Other artists in this issue include Vince Carrabotta, Al Hartley and Joe Maneely (cover). This is number 1 of 1 Western Gunfighters issues with Wood art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wood or Western Gunfighters issues. See also this blog's Wood checklist.
