Tomahawk #2 - Frank Frazetta / Al Williamson art


Tomahawk v1 #2, 1950 - During the early 1950s, Frank Frazetta and Al Williamson often collaborated across various genres. A significant portion were westerns, including this tale of a 19th century ranching pioneer. Frazetta usually inked over Williamson's pencils, but in this case their roles are reversed. The finished pages display the same finesse and draftsmanship of other works, but a few panels admittedly lack sharpness and clarity. The cowboy portraits on the bottom of page 3 (see interior page shown below) are among the artistic highlights. Other artists in this issue include Fred Ray. This is number 1 of 1 Tomahawk issues with Frazetta art and/or covers and number 1 of 1 Tomahawk issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson, Frazetta or Tomahawk issues. See also this blog's Williamson checklist, Frazetta checklist or Top 10 Frazetta comics.
