Wyatt Earp v3 #20 - Al Williamson art


Wyatt Earp v3 #20, 1956 - Boasting 68 pages, this special issue features a roundup of all new stories. Among the many artistic contributors is Al Williamson, who provides four stories. His work is more illustrative than that of his peers, using stark lighting to increase drama. Most of his drawings are loosely executed, adding action and movement in most cases. A handful of pages seem hurried, but are somewhat offset by the better drawn scenes. Unfortunately, his last tale ("Red Justice") is erratic and quite sloppy. The lack of effort mars an otherwise decent Williamson issue. Other artists in this issue include Joe Maneely, George Tuska and Rocky Masterioso. This is number 4 of 4 Wyatt Earp issues with Williamson art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Williamson or Wyatt Earp issues.
