Matt Slade Gunfighter #1 - Al Williamson art + 1st appearance

Matt Slade Gunfighter #1
Matt Slade Gunfighter v1 #1, 1956 - One of several Atlas western heroes, Matt Slade makes his first appearance. Chaos breaks out when Slade enters a hotel where his wanted poster hangs, but manages to redeem himself. In a separate tale, a fearful town awaits a man with eighteen notches on his gun-belt, but things aren't always as they seem. Al Williamson uses generously large panels for only a four page tale, but still maintains an adequate pace. Angelo Torres' inking is a little too loose in certain scenes. The proportions of horse and rider on page four, panel four are considerably off. Still, their efforts generally meets expectations. This issue also includes cover artwork by John Severin and three stories by Joe Maneely. Cover by Maneely. This is 1 of 2 Matt Slade Gunfighter issues by Williamson. /// key 1st appearance Matt Slade, 1st issue
