The new movie, Cowboys and Aliens, opens today...
 ...but extraterrestrials have been popping up in Western comics since the 1950s!
The amazing art for this tale from 1952's Buster Crabbe Comics #5 was by Al Williamson and Roy Krenkel, who were astonishing comics fans with similar quality work at EC Comics on Weird Science and Weird Fantasy!
The cover was by fellow EC artist Frank Frazetta, who was also doing covers featuring Buck Rogers (whom Buster had played in the movies) for Famous Funnies, as well as illustrating the White Indian strip and covers for Ghost Rider! so he had handled both sci-fi and Western genres before doing this mixed-genre piece!
Enjoy Cowboys and Aliens, the newest version of a long-standing Western tradition!
