*Western: Two short-run series for our Atlas Western update this week – plus one guest! Billy Buckskin was launched in 1956, attempting to cash in on then-current craze for all things Davy Crockett related with a junior lookalike. Despite eye-catching covers by Maneely and excellent interior art by Mort Drucker (later famous for TV & movie parodies in Mad Magazine), Billy Buckskin lasted only three issues, and we have the first two. 1957’s Western Trails looked good, with Severin covers, interior art by Maneely and Severin, and starring the popular Ringo Kid character; but for some reason it ‘stalled’ never getting beyond its second issue. Both issues now in stock. And finally, a guest ride-along by Gunhawk, a.k.a. Red Larabee, whose series lasted longer than either of these others; low-grade issues added in this week. Illustrated: Billy Buckskin #1 GD+ £20 and Western Trails #1 VG £24.
