Kid Colt Outlaw #66 - Al Williamson art

Kid Colt Outlaw v1 #66, 1956 - An infamous outlaw rides into town, presumably to take revenge on the man who testified against him. A large spacious panel opens this all-too-brief tale of the old west (see interior page below). Al Williamson's artwork starts out strong, but diminishes toward the end. Fine painterly details abound on the rural, pristine backgrounds. Williamson takes special care with the characters' faces, allowing their expressions to set the appropriate tone. Other artists in this issue include John Severin and Jack Keller. This is number 6 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.
