Buster Crabbe #3 - Al Williamson art & cover

Buster Crabbe v1 #3, 1952 - Al Williamson's work combines both western and horror elements as Buster Crabbe and Whiskers encounter mountain ogres. The large club on the cover is a purposely threatening, while the whitened bones on reinforce the danger. Williamson brings the same heroic effort to the interior story. His superb draftsmanship is smoothly delineated by inker George Evans. While superior to the rest of the book, their collaborative effort is most impressive on the final two pages. This is number 2 of 3 Buster Crabbe issues with Williamson art and/or covers.
