Frontier Western #3 - Al Williamson art


Frontier Western v1 #3, 1956 - As the infamous Joe Mungo nears the town of Fargo Falls, the local sheriff prepares for a gun battle with the most fearsome outlaw in the region. A highlight of this Al Williamson tale is a darkened scene on page 3 panel 4: a dramatic portrait of the outlaw. That aside, most of the drawings appear overworked and insensitive. Though plentiful in detail, the artwork appears hurried throughout, from the gathering of the sheriff and his deputies on page 1 to the final confrontation on page 4. Other artists in this issue include Joe Maneely, Don Heck and Bob Forgione. This is number 2 of 4 Frontier Western issues with Williamson art and/or covers.
