Star Spangled Comics #113 - Frank Frazetta art


Star Spangled Comics v1 #113, 1951 - Though a mix of diffferent genres fill this issue, the lead feature belongs to Tomahawk, a colonial-era adventurer. His latest challenge: stop the villainous Black Cougar from robbing the area's wagon trains. Frank Frazetta nicely captures the rough-hewn feel of the frontier era. The outdoor scenes are open and spacious, populated with individualized characters. Most memorable is the opening splash (see interior page above), showing the Black Cougar eyeing his victims from above. His figure and horse are beautifully cloaked in shadow, with just enough highlights for definition. This is number 1 of 1 Star Spangled Comics issues with Frazetta art and/or covers.
