Matt Slade Gunfighter #1 - Al Williamson art

Matt Slade Gunfighter v1 #1, 1956 - A fearful town awaits a man with eighteen notches on his gun-belt, but things aren't always as they seem. This Al Williamson story has generously large panels for only a four page story, but maintains an adequate pace. Angelo Torres' inking is a little too loose in certain scenes and the the proportions of horse and rider on page four, panel four are considerably off. Still, their collaborative effort generally meets expectations. Other artists in this issue include John Severin and Joe Maneely (cover & three stories). This is number 1 of 2 Matt Slade Gunfighter issues with Williamson art. See today's posts or more Williamson or Matt Slade Gunfighter issues. See also this blog's Williamson checklist.
