Durango Kid #13 - Frank Frazetta art

Durango Kid v1 #13, 1951 - George Washington himself gives Dan Brand and Tipi the mission of capturing and bringing back a British spy. Frank Frazetta's art falters a bit, lacking the zest and enthusiasm of previous issues. The backgrounds on certain panels are much less detailed, something sorely needed in the opening scene. Even the faces of many characters appear hurried and haphazardly drawn. The issue is among Frazetta's weakest efforts on an otherwise exceptional run on the series. This story was later reprinted in White Indian #13. Other artists in this issue include Joe Certa (Durango Kid stories). This is number 13 of 16 Durango Kid issues with Frazetta art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Frazetta or Durango Kid issues. See also this blog's Frazetta checklist or Top 10 Frazetta comics.
