an early monster title? Certainly an un usual theme for a western, but then all the early 1960s marvel westerns are of the fantastic.

This one is a very badly restored copy, has ben virtually stitched back together.

 

Great story and cover.

No. 35 is notable for being the very last comic book work of EC - Mad artist Jack Davis..A really nice issue.

I love this one,...should be much moer popular as its actually the very first appearance of a character called Red Raven, some years before the return of the character in X Men. This guy isn't the same Red Raven, but it is a recycled character, very common with Stan Lee's work of course.

 

The Next one is

The Poor relation of rawhide kid, the masked marvel of the west.

 

Generally less fantastical, but a great read.

Much obliged kind sir. The cover art is fantastic on many I have seen. Some of the Star Spangled and World's Finest are great too. Tomahawk #1 in itself is a fantastic cover.

I like Tomahawks. Sort of a cross between a war comic and a western. The art just seems like standard good DC 50s art.
