I've recently become obsessed with All-Star Western, a comic book title produced by DC Comics in 1970 that ran 71 issues.



The first 11 issues ran with this title. They contain a mixture of new stories and reprints of very old ones by the likes of Carmen Infantino, Neal Adams, Gil Kane, Joe Kubert, Frank Frazetta and Nick Cardy. The first few had new covers by Neal Adams and then Tony DeZuniga (who I didn't realize had such lovely pencils!)

The series was renamed Weird Western Tales at issue 12. Some things of note:

#10 = Jonah Hex's first appearance (drawn by DeZuniga)
#12-13 = new Neal Adams work
#14 = Alex Thoth story
#17- 38 = mostly Jonah Hex stories
#39 = 1st Scalphunter and the title remained mostly about him til the end of the series.
#48 = 1st Cinnamon appearance.
#60 = Scalphunter story entitled "The Gangs of Old New York" (curious if it shares any materials with the movie Gangs of New York).

I'll probably stick with just finding issues 1-15
