Before Graham Ingels became famous for his horror stories he saddled up at EC Comics for some Western action. He drew Gunfighter stories for the eponymous comic book. Ingels had worked at Fiction House before he landed at EC, doing comic book work and also pulp illustration.
No one can hold a dripping candle to the inspired artwork of Ingels in his Old Witch days at EC. Ingels' work on Gunfighter isn't classic like his horror, but it's still much better than most of his artist contemporaries. This story is the lead from Gunfighter #10, 1949.
We're doing some EC pre-Trend postings this week. Next, Moon Girl by Shelly Moldoff.
