Hi guys, need your expertise on identifying a font used in a comic title.
The WESTERN part is what I'm looking for. Not sure if it was a font, or hand done/manipulated. The closest I've come is Playbill but the E, S, and R are different. Blambot and Comiccraft don't seem to have anything like it. Any ideas, other than hand manipulating them?

The title was hand lettered, so the best you're going to find is something close.

That's what I thought, but I was hoping...

At least if you do find a font that is close on most of the letters, it saves you having to recreate them all yourself.

Yeah Playbill is pretty close just differences in some of the letters. At least I'll have a skeleton for what I'm doing.

Nope, as a matter of fact they didn't even come up with Playbill, and a lot of the fonts didn't even look like the one up there. In fact this was the first in the list: http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/intellecta/micro-fleurons/3/

Old Town is the closest I've found... You can add the pieces missing in Illustrator (particularly the lower half of the W at a quick glance)... G
