*Western: Kid Colt made his debut in the premier issue of his own magazine and holds the distinction of being the longest consecutively-published Western Hero, not only at Atlas/Marvel, but in all of comics, running from 1948 to 1979, though from the mid-Sixties his title was mostly reprints of his earlier stories. This selection, however, is from his prime, beginning with #15 and running selectively through to 1959’s #85, just before the dawn of the Marvel Universe. Blaine Colt, wrongly accused of murder, went on the run, doing good deeds to try and win back his good name and… well, that’s pretty much the entire concept right there, but it sustained him for decades in his own series, as well as several later crossovers where he was integrated into the Marvel Universe proper. Unlike his famous contemporaries, Rawhide Kid and Two-Gun Kid, Kid Colt didn’t ever get cancelled and relaunched as a substantially different character with the same name, but remained ‘himself’ throughout his long career. Illustrated in the early days by the underestimated Pete Tumlinson, other contributors to this selection of issues include Severin, Maneely, Heath, Post, Berg, Ayers, and towards the latter part of the run, a new kid named Kirby who we think may have potential. Illustrated are #20 FN £61 and #84 FN £23, but prices and grades of all the others may be found in our online catalogue.
