Sheriff of Tombstone #1 - mis-attributed Al Williamson cover


Sheriff of Tombstone v1 #1, 1958 - Al Williamson drew relatively few covers in his long career. This one is credited to him in The Art of Al Williamson, but other sources contest this. Even more confusing, the Overstreet guide credits the reprinted version on Gunfighters #56 to the artist but not the original. Other sources credit Dick Giordano with an assist by John Severin, and after closer examination I have to agree. The only Williamson western cover I'm aware of is Kid Colt Outlaw #54. At the very least, this is an outstanding piece by Giordano. Other artists in this issue include Sal Trapani. See today's posts or more Williamson or Sheriff of Tombstone issues.
