Good western comics for game development
« on: March 10, 2019, 01:10:36 PM »
I hope you can help me with this.

I'm planning to develop a computer game based in the Old West and I would like to use some free graphical content to prototype it. And using old, public domain comics is an excellent way to do it in a really cost effective way.

I've been looking around but I prefer to check with the experts, so... could you recommend some comics that:

  • have good graphic quality
  • have a good amount of different characters, in different situations
  • scanning quality is not so important

 Many thanks.

Prize Comics Western (Prize Comics Group) in the 1950's had a variety of characters. This even included some positive Native American characters. Good art by John Severin and many others.

Magazine Enterprises published a ton of westerns. Lots of good art there, including Bob Powell at his best. Even Frank Frazetta contributed to White Indian.
