Kid Colt Outlaw #57 - Al Williamson art

Kid Colt Outlaw v1 #57, 1956 - A gang of criminals seeks revenge on a small town sheriff, who decides to fight rather than run. Exceptional in its execution, Al Williamson's art captures the somber mood perfectly. His fine brushwork and detail enhance the characters' faces and clothing (see interior page below). The artistry even extends to the sole outdoor scene (page 4), depicting the gang's confident entrance into town. Other artists in this issue include Jack Keller. This is number 2 of 8 Kid Colt Outlaw issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Kid Colt Outlaw issues. See also this blog's Al Williamson checklist.
