Romantic Western #2 - Al Williamson art


Romantic Western v1 #2, 1950 - Falling for a local beauty named Conchita, Gene Lasseter tries to court her despite her big brother's penchant for beating up potential suitors. This early work by Al Williamson is one of only a handful of romance tales in his career. His layouts are fairly rudimentary, but his inking is fluid and precise (see interior page below). More impressive is his dynamic figure drawing, which would be a hallmark of his work in decades to follow. Other artists in this issue include Al McWilliams. This is number 1 of 1 Romantic Western issues with Williamson art and/or covers.
