...cause there sure as hell ain't no time to bring you up to speed, buckaroo!
We'll rejoin our many and varied protagonists Tuesday, at...

You can't accuse writers Fred Van Lente & Andrew Foley, pencilers  Luciano Lima, and inkers J Wilson, Silvio Spotto & Luciano Kars of not starting off Platinum Studos' graphic novel Cowboys and Aliens (2006) with a BANG, eh?

Russkies, Flying Saucers...and Cowboys? SPACE WESTERN COMICS "Spurs Sees RED!"

Space Western Comics (the ORIGINAL Cowboys vs Aliens) returns...
...but this time, the threat is Commies with a flying saucer!
(Hey it was the 1950s!)
Sadly, the Russkies didn't even salvage a crashed alien ship and retro-engineered it's tech.
It's just a disguised Flying Wing...which both we and they were working on at the time.
(We were also working on our own flying saucers, but don't tell the Russkies!)
Art on this tale was by John Belfi, with a script by Walter (The Shadow) Gibson!.

Lunar Russkies! SPACE WESTERN "Spurs Jackson and His Space Vigilantes Battle the Red Menace Beyond the Moon"

Didn't think we could do a Western-themed blog post that related to travel to the Moon?
Then you don't know about Charlton's 1950s title, Space Western Comics, which we covered HERE!
And, because it was the 1950s...there had to be Russkies lurking about...
This seldom-reprinted (once in b/w in 1992) tale from Charlton's Space Western Comics #43 (1953) was written by Walter (The Shadow) Gibson and illustrated by Stan Campbell.
Considering how poorly the Russkies are doing in Ukraine, it's doubtful they ever could've mounted an attempt at lunar conquest!
