Straight Arrow #3 - Frank Frazetta cover

Straight Arrow v1 #3 - Frank Frazetta golden age western cover art
Frank Frazetta
Straight Arrow v1 #3, 1950 - The title character finds himself locked in battle with a marauding grizzly on this Frank Frazetta cover. The animal has considerable mass and weight, pulsating with strength and ferocity. Most remarkable is the artist's brushwork, giving the fur unusual softness and luster. Deceptively simple in composition, Frazetta's cover is powerfully effective. Other artists in this issue include Fred Meagher and Bob Powell. This is number 1 of 2 Straight Arrow issues with Frazetta art and/or covers.

  1. Nothing against Frazetta here, but it looks like the guy's being attacked by a bear rug.
