Billy Buckskin #3 - Al Williamson art


Billy Buckskin Western v1 #3, 1956 - When Old Tom's murderer is brought in, the townspeople seek their own justice rather than having a trial. Al Williamson's story pencils are loosely applied, with some crediting Roy Krenkel as inker. Page 2 panels 1-4 are especially rough and poorly executed. The remaining pages meet stylistic expectations, leading me to believe Williamson did most of the inking. His opening splash (see interior page below) is excellent, providing a view shared by simmering mob. Other artists in this issue include John Severin and Mort Drucker. This is number 1 of 1 Billy Buckskin issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Billy Buckskin issues. See also this blog's Al Williamson checklist.
