Barry Smith's The Outcast



Here's a wonderful Steve Parkhouse / Barry Smith piece, originally done in 1969, that languished in Marvel's inventory draw until 1971, where it was unceremoniously shoved in the back of Western Gunfighters # 4.
Y'know when a story is described as all-action? This is ALL action.
And this '70's hippie transplanted into the Old West, this Outcast, Half-Breed, whatever you wanna call him, really should've been given another shot at the big time.
But only if Bazza Smith got to draw him.

  1. This is in a UK Marvel in lush b/w. An educated guess would be one of the Western Gunfighters Specials.
