Comic books live or die based on their cover scenes. With this in mind, DC westerns came up with truckloads of exciting cover scenerios. Which are WILDEST? I"ve selected the top 10 wildest western comic covers. Let's go through them one by one, starting with number ten.

NUMBER 10
X
Western Comics #27, September 1951

"Looters of Lost Valley," a young gunslinger has to cross a river on a huge rolling tree trunk. As if that wasn't enough, a trio of bad guys attacks them when they're halfway done. Good luck, boys!


NUMBER 9
X
Weird Western #65, March 1980

Have you ever tried to jump from one cliff to another -- on a moving horse? Well, Scalphunter has, and when he did it, the cliff nearly collapsed on the other side. Still, he had time to hold up his rifle dramatically!


NUMBER 8
X
Western Comics #37, Jan-Feb 1953
DC sometimes mixed supernatural themees with western stories, as they did in "Death Dancer," where a sneaker-wearing hoodoo witch doctor cast a deadly spell on the Wyoming Kid.

NUMBER 7
X
All-Star Western #118, April-May 1961
Yikes! Crossing a rickety wooden bridge, carrying a woman and attacked by a wild, bridge-crossing wolf-- all while blind! Not easy.

NUMBER 6
X
All-Star Western #69, March 1953
Another supernatural-themed cover shows a recently-killed lawman rising like a spectre to attack his murderers in "The Ghost Sherriff." Looks like Gil Kane drew this, to me.
