Danger Is Our Business #1 - Al Williamson / Frank Frazetta art


Danger Is Our Business v1 #1, 1953 - Comprised of a few different genres, this first issue is notable for its Captain Comet science fiction tale. Al Williamson, a master of the genre, provides the most sophisticated artwork in the book. His exotic settings and heroic figure drawings are further enhanced by the inks of the equally talented Frank Frazetta. Sensitive brushwork and textures increase depth and interest, most evidently in the colorful uniforms of various characters. Frazetta appears to be his most assertive on the depiction of ferocious hounds on page 4 panel 6. This is but one of their many collaborations during the golden age. This story was later reprinted in The Art of Al Williamson and Danger Is Our Business v2 #9. This is number 1 of 1 Danger Is Our Business issues with Williamson art and/or covers (nor including reprints) and number 1 of 1 Danger Is Our Business issues with Frazetta art and/or covers (nor including reprints).
