Just got this one in. A small B-day gift for myself I found pretty cheap. Too lazy to scan so here is a pic. A very clean copy.

Thanks guys I know it doesn't compare to most of the westerns shown, but I am extremely happy with it; the gloss and colors in person are fantastic.

The eye appeal is nonetheless excellent. It looks to me as if you'd have to squint to find flaws.

Cool - interesting that Marvel's copy implies that Two-Gun Kid is a "new" character, not just new to the title.

 

I've always been intrigued by Gunsmoke Western as it spans the Atlas to Marvel transition, and yet was unknown to me as a title when I collected SA Marvels as a kid in the early 70s (not that I was that interested in Westerns, but I was aware of the characters and titles and owned a few SA Western books). Looking at the cover gallery it also seems to have a fair number of split covers where the two main features share the cover - presaging the earlier shared issues of TTA and TOS.

RAWHIDE KID 19 Mass Copy White pages

so is it safe to infer from a 9.6 #19 that there exists a comparable HG Mass copy of 17 and 23?

 

... in your house? : )

I would love to know the background as to how long you owned it, and where you may have found it.

Another great book. What other HG beauties do you have squirreled away in your collection? I was under the assumption that I would never see a HG book like that RK 19 pop up until now.

I purchased it in July from Metro, no pressing. It just sat in a cold, dark, dry place waiting to be submitted. I would have been happy with it coming back an 8.0., as I usually do not put faith in most raw grades from major websites. All I can say is this , Metro has been getting some great books lately and if you are not persistent these gems will pass you buy. But I am preaching to the choir :kidaround:. I am just as excited about these books as I have ever been. :headbang:
