As Phil Rushton observed on yesterday's blog comments, the 1950's witnessed a huge surge of interest in the "Wild West", nowhere more so than in the U.K. Children's TV was full of the stuff, you could thrill to the adventures of Davy Crockett, Gun Law, Wagon Train, Rawhide and Hawkeye and the Last of the Mohicans. And if that wasn't enough then there was the occasional visit to the cinema with "High Noon", "The Man That Shot Liberty Valance" and John Ford's epic, "The Searchers".
And of course comics mirrored these tastes and as we have seen seeing over the last couple of days, one of the premier exemplars of the art of Wild West comic art was Ron Embleton, so with once again the aid of John Wigmans and Phil Rushton here are some more visual treats upon which to feast your eyes.
