Golden Age Western Comics fra PowerHouse Books

Hvis du kan nikke genkendende til gamle Western navne som Wild Bill Hickok, Jesse James, Annie Oakley, Davy Crockett, Daniel Boone, Tex Ritter, Lash LaRue, Gabby Hayes, og Tom Mix… så er denne nye hc fra PowerHouse Books lige noget for dig. Jeg har tidligere skrevet om Lash LaRue i denne blog i forbindelse med de dejlige hæfter fra AC Comics, men nu har Stephen Brower, manden der gav os bogen om Mort Meskin, samlet tyve af de bedste knaldperler fra de amerikanske golden age blade, western historier fra perioden 1948-56, mange med udspring i de amerikanske B Western film, ting, der herhjemme ville have været vist i biografernes fire-forestillinger. Der er tale om second tier helte, som ikke er blevet genoptrykt endnu, så store navne som Tomahawk, Lone Ranger, og Rawhide Kid vil ikke være at finde heri. Men som sagt, tyve restaurerede scanninger i farver, og en unik chance for at stifte bekendtskab med andre tegnere fra dengang, da farfar var ung.

Book Description

Publication Date: May 8, 2012
The Wild West has been romanticized in American culture ever since the dime novels capturing the exploits of Jesse James were produced in the years directly following the Civil War, and the Western genre continues to enthrall audiences to this day. The stories of frontiersmen, outlaws, cowboys, Indians, prospectors, and marksmen surviving the harshest of environments through wit, skill, and determination, or meeting their end by bullet, noose, or exposure speak to what it means to be American and play an essential part in how we define ourselves as a nation. These mythic stories have been captured and created in almost every popular mass medium of the past century and beyond from tabloids to novels, radio plays, television shows, and movies.

Now, powerHouse Books is pleased to present a collection of these uniquely American stories as told through a uniquely American medium…the comic book! Golden Age Western Comics lovingly reproduces in full-color, restored, complete scans of 20 of the best Western stories—plus a few pin-ups—created between the years 1948 and 1956. These lavishly illustrated stories of guts and glory, violence and valor, intrigue, romance, and betrayal, on the range and in lawless frontier towns, were created by some of the best artists and writers of the era. The action flies off the page in stories such as “The Tragedy at Massacre Pass,” and “Breakout in rondo Prison,” from the greatest earliest publishing houses, including: Fawcett, Charlton, Avon, Youthful, and more.Golden Age Western Comics is a collection unlike any other and is sure to delight fans of rootin-tootin, gun-toting, adventure of all ages!
