Weird Western Tales #13 - Neal Adams art

Weird Western Tales v1 #13 featuring El Diablo & Jonah Hex, 1972 - A trio of bank robbers, newly released from prison, reclaim the stolen money hidden long ago in an ordinary household. Neal Adams' opening sequence on this El Diablo tale brilliantly conveys the moment of anticipation before they take action. Beautifully drawn throughout, especially noteworthy panels include the close-up of an old Native American's face (see interior page shown below), El Diablo's sudden appearance before the gunmen, and the final confrontation set against the background of a rising sun. This story was later reprinted in Jonah Hex and other Weird Western Tales #1. Other artists in this issue include Tony DeZuniga (Jonah Hex cover and story). This is number 2 of 3 Weird Western issues with Adams art and/or covers.
