Western Outlaws v2 #11 - Al Williamson art


Western Outlaws v2 #11, 1955 - A newly appointed sheriff must prove himself to the town's skeptical populace, taking on troublemakers and cattle rustlers. Al Williamson's opening panel of an impending showdown elicits little excitement. Later scenes, set in the frontier wilderness, show more overt enthusiasm (see interior page below). Certain pages border on too much dialogue, but Williamson's skillful drawings more than compensate. Other artists in this issue include Gene Colan, Ross Andru and Joe Maneely (cover). This is number 1 of 3 Western Outlaws issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Western Outlaws issues. See also this blog's Al Williamson checklist.
