Fargo Kid #3 - Al Williamson art


Fargo Kid v1 #3, 1958 - Al Williamson is tasked with two stories this issue. In the first, the Fargo Kid's origin 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). "The Fargo Kid" was later reprinted in the book Al Williamson Forbidden Worlds. 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.
