Cowboys & Aliens Circa 1952

Apparently, Steven Busti is claiming that "Cowboys & Aliens" was his idea back in 1994, published the following year in Bizarre Fantasy, and that Scott Rosenberg swiped it for Platinum's 2006 series Cowboys & Aliens. I haven't read either series or seen the recent movie to be able to compare them directly but, frankly, they both suspiciously sound a lot like Charlton's old Space Western Comics from 1952...
So, not exactly an entirely original concept we're dealing with here.

"...not exactly an entirely original concept we're dealing with here."

Which concept do you mean, a cowboys / space aliens mashup? Or claiming that "this obscure work I created decades ago was ripped off by a subsequent work (which, by sheer coincidence, was recently turned into a mega-budget movie)?"

And all the time, I thought it was ripped off from a Far side comic.

I'm more curious why Spurs is wearing a skirt and has cleavage.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Sorry this post is a decade too late.
