Fargo Kid #3 - Al Williamson art


Fargo Kid v1 #3, 1958 - Al Williamson is tasked with two main features in this issue. In the first. the origin of the Fargo Kid is recounted by two men in a saloon. In the second, the title character leads a wagon straight through hostile indian territory. Williamson's pencils are a tad overwhelmed by the inks, but not to the detriment of the artwork as a whole. The artist's distinctive figure drawing comes through in many of the panels, typically the fight scenes (see interior page below). Other artists in this issue include John Severin and Russ Heath. This is number 1 of 1 Fargo Kid issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Fargo Kid issues.
