Famous Funnies #214 - Frank Frazetta cover

Frank Frazetta Buck Rogers 1950s golden age science fiction comic book cover / Famous Funnies #214
Frank Frazetta
Famous Funnies v1 #214, 1955 - An enormous red planet dramatically occupies most of the layout, dwarfing the figures below. Buck Rogers and Wilma discover an armed stowaway atop their tiny ship. This quietly disturbing scene is Frank Frazetta's most subtle of the series. The looming orb and distant stars are beautifully rendered with textural sensitivity. Together they imply the silence of deep space without detracting from the characters. This Frazetta masterpiece (and others on this series) would set a high standard for sci-fi comics in decades to come. This is number 6 of 8 Famous Funnies issues with Frazetta art and/or covers.
