Davy Crocket-Jack Kirby-1955

Technically, the title of this comic was WESTERN TALES but since Davy Crockett was a historical figure, he was also fair game for various publishers to do their own versions of him after the quick success of Disney's 1954 TV version. Kirby was coasting here, past his early peak and still a few years away from running wild with his second act at Marvel, he was, with and without sometime partner Joe Simon, trying everything looking for success. The page at the end is a very typical Kirby introductory pinup page from this same 1955 issue.
