*Western: The long-running series Gunsmoke Western ran from 1955 to 1963, commencing with #32, taking over the numbering from the defunct Tales of the Black Rider series. It is of course entirely coincidental that a popular and long-running TV show, Gunsmoke, debuted earlier in the same year, 1955, as this sound-alike title, ahem ahem. Gunsmoke Western relied on the established star power of Kid Colt, paired at first with Billy Buckskin, who swiftly made way for Wyatt Earp as Colt’s long-term stablemate, with occasional later visits from Two-Gun Kid Mk I. In addition to Maneely and Severin as the mainstays, other prominent artists were ‘Mad’ alumnus Jack Davis, and Jack Kirby towards the end of the run. We have 28 of the 46 issues, ranging from the premier issue, #32, through to 1960’s #61, in a wide variety of grades. Illustrated are issues #46 (VF £56) and #47 (VF £60).
