Durango Kid #5 - Frank Frazetta art


Durango Kid v1 #5, 1950 - Settlers plan on building a town around Fort Pitt in Pennsylvania, but not before a lumber company decides to thwart their plans. The weak opening panel (of settlers felling trees) is atypical for Frank Frazetta, who compensates with deftly drawn remaining pages. The wilderness setting is an artistic high point, particularly the meticulously detailed forests (see interior page below). On page 7, Dan Brand 's fist metes out frontier justice in a way only Frazetta can capture. This story was later reprinted in White Indian #12. Other artists in this issue include Joe Certa (Durango Kid stories). This is number 5 of 16 Durango Kid issues with Frazetta art and/or covers.
