Black Terror #24 - Frank Frazetta art


Black Terror v1 #24, 1948 - Bondage covers were fairly common during the golden age, attracting male readership of varying ages. Compared to others, this example seems mild by comparison (the woman appears more annoyed than distressed). Inside, a young Frank Frazetta makes a small contribution to the issue, illustrating a panel on an educational facts page (bottom, lower left on the interior page shown below). This depiction of a frog jumping race is small, but already outshines the work of most of his peers. This is number 2 of 2 Black Terror issues with Frazetta art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Frazetta or Black Terror issues. See also this blog's Frazetta checklist or Top 10 Frazetta comics.
