European Western Comic Books ~ Kentucky

This western comic book series was first released in 1955 and contained eight issues beginning with issue #1 on September 20, 1955 and ending with issue #8 on  December 11, 1955. It was published in Rome, Italy by Editrice C. Cecchini, under the direction of  Nello Conforti with each issue containing 16 pages with black and white pages with color covers.
