Star Western

 SLI1   (Avalon, 2000)

™ and ©2000 Avalon Comics Group

Wild Bill Hickok in “Last Stage to Cheyenne.” Lash LaRue and “The Killers in the Hills.” Tex Ritter in “Wanted: Dead or Alive!” The legendary Wyatt Earp in “Gun-Crazy Marshal.” And, just to prove there’s not a gender bias when it comes to gunplay, Annie Oakley in “Queen of Alkali Flats.” These and other short stories of heroes, villains, and legends of the Old West, originally presented decades earlier, are collected and reprinted here in black-and-white by ACG Comics.

But that’s not all. In addition to these rippin’ yarns of action and danger, backup features provide added value to each issue. Ever wanted to understand Indian sign language? Curious as to the origins of the phrase “Dead Man’s Hand”? The answers are here. Moreover, each issue features a photo cover of an old movie western star—including John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart—and biographical overviews of the actor and his relevant work. And finally, even though all tales are uncredited, readers with an eye for artwork might spot early efforts from creators (for example, John Romita) who went on to greater fame.
