Heroic Comics #72 - Frank Frazetta art

Heroic Comics v1 #72, 1952 - Among the many tales of heroism, three feature Medal of Honor recipients during the Korean War. Frank Frazetta draws each in a gritty realistic style. The first tale employs bolder lines and strokes than the others (including a rendition of Harry Truman), but all three are detailed and well executed. Also appearing in the same issue is a public service ad for the Red Cross. This single page by Frazetta appears in other comics by the same publisher. This is number 7 of 15 Heroic Comics issues with Frazetta art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Frazetta or Heroic Comics issues.

  1. I love Frank Frazetta! I tried to mimic his fantasy colour pallet a little in the barbarian picture I have

    I am especially a big fan of his more fantasy orientated work. But his comic stuff is amazing too.
