Frontier Western #2 - Al Williamson art

Frontier Western v1 #2, 1956 - When a cowboy turns to crime, he finds no support from his friends and neighbors. Al Williamson’s tale of one man's bad choices is loosely drawn (sometimes too loosely). His trademark lighting and figure drawings are present in most of scenes. Still, a few panels seem a tad simplistic. His opening panel, of the main character turning around on horseback, is quietly minimal. Two sources credit Williamson for the inks, but some pages resemble other works inked by Gray Morrow. Other artists in this issue include Joe Maneely, George Tuska, Don Heck and Gene Colan. This is number 1 of 4 Frontier Western issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Frontier Western issues. See also this blog's Al Williamson checklist.
