Ghost Rider #4 - Frank Frazetta cover

Ghost Rider v1 #4 comic book cover art by Frank Frazetta
Frank Frazetta
Ghost Rider v1 #4, 1951 - The Ghost Rider and his horse emerge from an empty grave, terrifying three cowboys. The art is more stylistic and less realistic than Frank Frazetta's previous covers on the series. The anatomical distortions, such as the curvature on the horse's neck, are effective and eerily expressive. The figure on the bottom left, however, reeks of an unintentionally comic feel. This is number 3 of 4 Ghost Rider issues with Frazetta art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Frazetta or Ghost Rider issues. See also this blog's Frazetta checklist or Top 10 Frazetta comics.

  1. The background looks so similar to Meatloafs Bat out of Hell album cover
