The Gun-Barrel Kid Escapes-Joe Sinnott-1956

Atlas Comics turned out so many westerns at one point in the 1950's that it was inevitable that many would seem interchangeable. What distinguished a surprising number of these horse operas, however, was their artwork. This Stan Lee tale from TWO-GUN WESTERN features some really nice, heavily detailed art by the great Joe Sinnott, for example, that seems somewhat influenced by the work of John Severin, who also did a number of Atlas westerns.
