The 40 Years of Comics Project - Day 133: Rawhide Kid #134, July 1976


I'm on this ongoing quest sort of thing to try to figure out why western comics were such a big deal. I just don't get it.

This issue of Rawhide Kid was okay, but nothing special. I'm interested in the sorts of comics that would exist in a world where superheroes are real. Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons famously suggest that pirate comics take the place of the superhero, but at one time westerns were more popular than superheroes, so I have to wonder if westerns might not have been a more realistic choice.

Still, I didn't really get this. But on the other hand, let's call it a celebration of Stampede! See you tomorrow.
