Western Fighters #11 - Al Williamson / Frank Frazetta art


Western Fighters v1 #11, 1949 - A quaint story tells of how the term "maverick" was originated in the pioneer days of Texas. This early collaboration by Al Williamson and Frank Frazetta is a nice pairing of artistic styles, but far less distinctive than their later works. The opening panel presents the arrival of a covered wagon but little else to incite interest. The scene is too minimal, squandering an opportunity to give readers a better sense of the frontier era. Frazetta's inks offer only a marginal improvement over Williamson's pencils. Other artists in this issue include Al McWilliams, Al Eadeh and Paul Reinman. This is number 1 of 1 Western Fighters issue with Williamson art and/or covers and number 1 of 1 Western Fighters issue with Frazetta art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Frazetta, Williamson or Western Fighters issues. See also this blog's Williamson checklist, Frazetta checklist or Top 10 Frazetta comics.
