Famous Funnies #166 - Al Williamson art (1st pro work)


Famous Funnies v1 #166, 1948 - In the issue's only text story, a ranch hand defends an old horse from being abused by a bully. Al Williamson, in his first published comic book work, contributes the two illustrations accompanying the story. Both are long horizontal panels, framing drawings that appear stiff and overworked. Still, one can see potential in his figure drawing, which would become more dynamic and distinctive in subsequent years. Other artists in this issue include Clifford McBride and Marty Links. This is number 1 of 2 Famous Funnies issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Famous Funnies issues. See also this blog's Williamson checklist.
