Heroic Comics #71 - Frank Frazetta art

Heroic Comics v1 #71, 1952 - Frank Frazetta illustrates two Korean War tales, both excellent in their rendition. The first tells of Travis Watkins, a soldier that covered his buddies' escape from Communist Chinese. The artist opens the story by juxtaposing his fallen figure with a heroic portrait. Frazetta's second contribution is a one-pager with a similar scenario. His detailing is exquisite, but partially marred by the odd placement of the publisher's statement of ownership. This is number 6 of 15 Heroic Comics issues with Frazetta art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Frazetta or Heroic Comics issues. See also this blog's Frazetta checklist or Top 10 Frazetta comics.
