Durango Kid #14 - Frank Frazetta art

Durango Kid v1 #14, 1951 - The adventures of Dan Brand and Tipi take them on the high seas, away from their typical missions on the open frontier. Sadly, the quality of Frank Frazetta's art begins to decline. Compared to earlier issues, backgrounds are more simplistic and the characters' faces lack definition. The artist's only saving grace is the large first panel, depicting Dan Brand perilously walking the gangplank while sharks circle below. His oceanic waves are rendered in stunning fashion. Other artists in this issue include Joe Certa (Durango Kid stories) This is number 14 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.

  1. Striking pre-code cover. The bad guy wins! Plus, we see a bit more definition in the foreground figure's glutes than necessary.
