Manhunt #11 - Frank Frazetta art


Manhunt v1 #11, 1952 - A US marshal tracks down stagecoach robbers on this quaint western tale. Frank Frazetta, signing the opening panel "Fritz", is a tad constrained by the small panels. The level of detail is inconsistent on pages 3,4, and 6, opting for a minimum of linework. His best moments occur on the first two pages, where he inks more elaborate shadows in characters' clothing and backgrounds. Frazetta's rendition of horses is usually breathtaking, and this story is no exception. This is number 1 of 1 Manhunt issues with Frazetta art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Frazetta or Manhunt issues. See also this blog's Frazetta checklist or Top 10 Frazetta comics.
