Adventure Comics #151 - Frank Frazetta art


Adventure Comics v1 #151, 1951 - Coming the the aid of a small town sheriff, the Shining Knight lends him his pegasus Winged Victory to fight crime. In the meantime, Sir Justin must find and tame a new horse for the old lawman. One of the more lighthearted Shining Knight tales, Frank Frazetta's opening panel could use more background detail. Other panels are similarly spare, but not detrimental to the storytelling. Overall, the artist compensates with his skillful renditions of character faces and figures. This story was later reprinted in Masterworks Series of Great Comic Book Artists #1. Other artists in this issue include Ralph Mayo, John Sikela, Al Plastino and George Papp. This is number 2 of 8 Adventure Comics issues with Frazetta art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Frazetta or Adventure Comics issues.
