Format: Hardcover
The other reviewer doesn't realize that this book is not a major companies work. It is simply a bunch of people scanning old yellowed comics into a book format. it does have several good forwards written here. But in fact this is mainly Charlton reprints. but you can't find old western comics in book form out there much. So if you want to read some old comics that are not restored and scanned , then this is for you. I do like what marvel did with the rawhide kid though, remastered and new looking. But at least you can read some old stories. here. The other reviewer didn't get to read his favorites., but these guys just took what they could. A proper book of reprints would be great. However it is cool to be able to at least read these old comics. But be warned they are yellowed and such. Someday someone will start reprinting old westerns with restoration. marvel at least may do more. I hope so. but here you get what you get.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book was a great disappointment. It left out some of my favorites as a boy. No Tim Holt, No Durango Kid, No Folly of the Fighting Fifth, No Cheyenne Kid, No Red Ryder, No Straight Arrow, No Roy, Dale or Gene, no Tex Ritter, Tim McCoy, no Hoppy, Lone Ranger, no Zorro, etc. etc. There was one Tom Mix and one Lash Larue but the book dwelled on the sleazy Carlton Comics. Where were the Marvel Western heroes. It was less than golden in my imagination.
