First Issue #1 - March 1955
Last #151 - May 1979
Continued in Rawhide Kid (1985 series)
Rawhide Kid comic books feature Johnny Bart, a heroic gunfighter of the 19th-century American West who was unjustly wanted as an outlaw. He is one of Marvel's most prolific Western characters. Starting with issue #18, the Rawhide Kid was revamped by writer Stan Lee, penciler Jack Kirby and inker Ayers. The Rawhide Kid was a diminutive yet confident, soft-spoken fast gun constantly underestimated by bullying toughs squeezed through the prism of Lee & Kirby's imagination. The Rawhide Kid was a freewheeling romp of energetic, almost slapstick action across the old West.
