Outlaw Kid #18 - Al Williamson art


Outlaw Kid v1 #18, 1957 - Carving a notch for his upcoming kill, a gunfighter chooses a victim who refuses to draw a gun. Al Williamson's artwork is dependably sound, conveying both drama and action. During the inevitable stand-off, the artist places the gunman's fallen weapon in the foreground (see interior page below). This cleverly suggests that it's out of reach while hinting at its importance. Williamson's pencils are deftly finished by Ralph Mayo, a frequent and often excellent collaborator. Other artists in this issue include Doug Wildey and Joe Maneely (cover). This is number 4 of 4 Outlaw Kid issues with Williamson art and/or covers.
