The Battling Buckaroo

When Mort Meskin stopped doing Vigilante for DC's Action Comics, he was replaced by Dan Barry. Although we know Barry mostly from his work on the daily (and later Sunday) Flash Gordon, he was a prolific and very influential comic book artist in the late forties and early fifties. His work has a pleasant realism, couple with good compositions and a great ability to draw action. I showed quite a few of his stories for Vigilante, but apparently this one escaped me.

Wow, what outstanding art! I've always been amazed that Vigilante - a B-or-C-level feature at best - was blessed by talents like Meskin and Barry.
