Circus Comics v2 #1 - Frank Frazetta art


Circus Comics v2 #1, 1948 - This one-shot circus themed comic includes a brief whodunit by Frank Frazetta. When the circus sword swallower is murdered during a performance, only a handful of suspects could have done it. At two pages, the story is painfully short, but the artwork is largely satisfactory. It clearly reveals a young Frazetta still honing his talents. Other artists in this issue include Art Helfant. This is number 1 of 1 Circus Comics issues with Frazetta art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Frazetta or Circus Comics issues.
