Rocky Lane's Black Jack #23 - Al Williamson art

Rocky Lane's Black Jack v1 #23, 1958 - A Texas ranger named Red Grogan goes undercover, hoping to stop a crew of cattle rustlers. In this western tale, Al Williamson’s artwork rises above the usual Charlton fare. Still, his spontaneous brushwork lacks detail and craftsmanship on too many panels. The sole exception is the final page of the story. The artwork is more tightly executed with keen contrasts of light and shadow. Unfortunately, the overall effort is less representative of his true talents. Other artists in this issue include Rocco Mastroserio, Charles Nicholas and Vince Alascia. This is number 1 of 1 Rocky Lane's Black Jack issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Rocky Lane's Black Jack issues.
