Random Reads: "The Bravados" by Wein, Shores, and Esposito

We're back with more rare Len Wein goodness, Groove-ophiles! Wein's "The Bravados" over at Skywald was like a Sam Peckinpah movie squeezed into ten pages. With solid, action-packed art from Syd Shores and Mike Esposito, the lead feature for Wild Western Action #1 (cover-dated March 1971) is more fun than a cold sarsaparilla and a slice'a beef jerky! Check it out!


  1. Skywald picked some genres to publish that were already on the way out: Western, Jungle. This was a very good comic, story and art. For once Mike Esposito was able to ink a story without ruining the penciller. Len Wein was good as ever. I'm amazed at how adaptable he was, pretty well able to script any kind of comic.

  2. Thanks so much for all the Len Wein stories posted, this is a gem I never knew about!
