I knew very little of Doug Wildey, the artist, aside of the fact that he had been the inspiration for the character Peevy in Dave Stevens' Rocketeer. I had also read an issue of Jonah Hex earlier in the 70's which featured Wildey's art, but I always wondered why he didn't draw anymore issues, as he was really good at it. In fact, Wildey, like Russ Heath and John Severin, and up to a certain point Joe Kubert (because he can draw anything) and Alex Toth, were among the few american comic artists that excelled in drawing westerns. Truth of the matter is that the european and south american artists are much better at drawing westerns than their american counterparts.Read more ›
Wildey's painted artwork is clearly a labor of love by a master of his craft whose enthusiasm for, and knowledge of, the real-life history and legends of the western genre burst from almost every page.
The over-sized dimensions of this book more fully allow the reader to appreciate his work, which is reproduced, un-retouched, from Wildey's original pages, including partially completed, loosely penciled pages interspersed among the final story, which was unfinished at the time of Wildey's death apparently.
