Jack Kirby cover/art begins; origin of Rawhide Kid (8/60)
Jack Kirby cover/art begins; origin of Rawhide Kid (8/60)The Rawhide Kid’s beginnings date back to the Golden Age, where Timely Comics introduced the character for a short run of sixteen issues in the late 50’s. Picking up the character again Atlas rejuvenated the gunslinger to reflect Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s growing influence which would go on to shape the future of what would become Marvel Comics. Continuing the numbering system abandoned by Atlas, Rawhide Kid #17 reintroduced the Western hero to a new era of readers and set in motion a successful run that would last well into the 70s. Rawhide would go on to be rebooted a few more times in the future but this issue, which presents his origin story, is the most-desirable to fans of the red-headed renegade.
