Cowboy Vs Sharks
Not really that many comics that mix cowboys and sharks, but there is this cover of Kid Colt Outlaw #228 (February, 1979) by Gene Colan and Dave Cockrum that applies, though the main story more involved Kid Colt battling with the dread pirate, Captain Barracuda.
Still, as the second to last issue of the series, which had turned into a reprint title at this time, it did feature a reprint of the story that originally appeared in Kid Colt Outlaw #109 (which was then reprinted in #131 and #175), with story by Stan Lee and Jack Keller, and covers here by Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers, making this comic a great segue from Western Comics Month, Shark Week and next month's Kirby Comics Month!
