Wonder Comics v2 #20 - Frank Frazetta art

Wonder Comics v2 #20, 1948 - The Silver Knight must conquer the Barghest, a panther-like creature, before it ravages the countryside. There seems to be a dispute whether Frank Frazetta inked part or all of this medieval-era tale. Some panels show greater effort than others, with varying degrees of success. His style appears in most of the character faces, but most obviously in the renditions of the Barghest itself (see interior page below). Sensitive brushwork is among Frazetta's hallmarks, but this early effort is a bit muddied. Other artists in this issue include Gene Fawcette, Rafael Astarita, George Roussos, Al Hartley, Lynn Karp, Dave Berg and Alex Schomburg (cover). This is number 3 of 3 Wonder Comics issues with Frazetta art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Frazetta or Wonder Comics issues.
