Gunsmoke Western #35 - Al Williamson art

Gunsmoke Western v1 #35, 1956 - After a close call with an ornery drunk, customers of a saloon recall an even meaner gunfighter named Texas Sam. Loosely rendered, Al Williamson's drawings are a tad less than adequate. The tale begins with an opening splash, capturing the troublemaker's moment of entry with little fanfare. Regarding the inks, the first few pages (like the interior page below) look suspiciously like Gray Morrow's hand but the rest appear to be by Williamson. Other artists in this issue Gene Colan, Jack Keller, Jerry Robinson and John Severin (art & cover). This is number 2 of 5 Gunsmoke Western issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Gunsmoke Western issues. See also this blog's Al Williamson checklist.
