Title

Gunsmoke Western, no. 34

Description

As they were on television and in cinema, Western were quite popular in 1950s comics. This issue of Gunsmoke Western features two recurring Western heroes, Kid Colt and Billy Buckskin. While Billy Buckskin would quickly fade out of Atlas's Western titles, Kid Colt was a mainstay along with Atlas's other "kid" Western heroes, Rawhide Kid and Two-Gun Kid. The Kid Colt Outlaw series ran 225 issues from 1948 to 1979, during which Atlas Comics changed its name to the now more familiar Marvel Comics. The cover of this issue is drawn by John Severin who, along with his sister Marie Severin, worked in the comic book industry from the 1940s to the 2000s.
