Hi guys,
Here's the latest banner for the site.

http://digitalcomicmuseum.com/images/DCM banner57-Western-new-animated.gif
For those curious about the source images:

Cowboy start is from Western Rough Riders 03 (Stanley Morse 1955)
The image is from the second story 'Vigilante' splash page which you can see here.
Art by Eugene E. Hughes.

The second showdown steet scene is from Best Of West 08 (ME1953).
It's from the top panel on page 5 of the first story that you can see here.  Art by Frank Bolle
The sweating face is from the cover of Battlefield Action 19 (Charlton1958).  Art by Masulli and Giordano

And the final Indian shooting the arrow scene is from the cover of Straight Arrow 015 (ME1951).
Art by Fred Meagher

Very effective, Yoc.

Give the amount of westerns showing up recently, also very timely.

Thanks Bob, glad you like it.  This was a tricky one to do too.

I actually started work on it years ago when we had our second ftp offering.  I ended up only using the Swift Arrow last section back then.  So I was happy I could finally use the first two somewhere finally.
And like you say, with all the westerns going up just lately it make good sense.

Really outstanding job on the new Banner.
Taking art from several sources and blending them into a single narrative
is impressive...let alone finding the required panels among the trillion available.
