Frank Frazetta
Top ten Frank Frazetta comic books Famous Funnies v1 #213, 1954 - One of Frank Frazetta's most famous covers, Buck Rogers and company stand fast while a brutish creature emerges from the shadows. His eyes glow curiously just as he begins to cross the threshold. The diminutive figures accentuate the creature's larger size, but the woman's limbs seem mis-proportioned and stunted. That aside, Frazetta expends great effort in illustrating complex, futuristic machinery. The background design is both aesthetically pleasing and utterly convincing. The artist's real genius is in deciding to obscure the larger figure, allowing the readers to imagine his horrific appearance. This is number 5 of 8 Famous Funnies issues with Frazetta art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Frazetta or Famous Funnies issues.
