Thrilling Comics #70 - Frank Frazetta art


Thrilling Comics v1 #70, 1948 - Less focused on the simple, rural settings than previous issues, Frank Frazetta's Loouie Lazybones tale revolves more around the various characters and their interactions. Despite the negative cultural stereotypes, the artist's drawings are humorous, engaging and aesthetically pleasing. Note how page 5 panel 7 omits the typical lined frame, suggesting a wider reach for the explosion. Frazetta continues to demonstrate what the genre can aspire to. Other artists in this issue include Art Saaf and Alex Schomburg (cover). This is number 5 of 8 Thrilling Comics issues with Frazetta art and/or covers.
