Crime Suspenstories #17 - Al Williamson / Frank Frazetta art


Crime Suspenstories v1 #17, 1952 - A handsome ranch hand takes advantage of his female boss, parlaying his looks into the foreman's job and other advantages. This tale of passion, obessission and rejection is beautifully drawn by Al Williamson. Winsome women and handsome men are portrayed against rugged and often painterly backdrops (see interior page below). Frank Frazetta's inks are exceptional, increasing dimension in many scenes. His fluid style also raises the overall aesthetic, evident in the characters' faces and expressions. Other artists in this issue include Johnny Craig, Will Elder and Jack Kamen. This is number 3 of 3 Crime Suspenstories issues with Williamson art and/or covers and number 1 of 1 Crime Suspenstories issues with Frazetta art and/or covers.
