Kid Colt Outlaw #88 - Al Williamson art, Jack Kirby cover

Jack Kirby
Kid Colt Outlaw v1 #88, 1960 - After stealing a thousand dollars worth of bonds, a thief runs out on his partner. Subsequently, a posse catches up and corners him on a rocky hill. The initial scenes employ a thick heavy line, but subsequent pages are more varied. Al Williamson’s inking is a little imprecise, but his pencils meet expectations. His best effort occurs on page 3, as the posse finds its quarry (see interior page below). Jack Kirby’s cover is immediately recognizable, despite the convoluted layout. Other artists in this issue include Jack Keller. This is number 7 of 8 Kid Colt Outlaw issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson, Kirby or Kid Colt Outlaw issues.
