John Wayne Adventure Comics #7 - Al Williamson / Frank Frazetta art


John Wayne Adventure Comics v1 #7, 1951 - Searching for a hidden document, a gang of criminals decide to hunt down John Wayne's pal Bonanza. Like previous issues, Al Williamson and Frank Frazetta join forces to create a contemporary and distinctive style. "An Invitation to Murder" is their finest work on the series, combining Williamson's dynamic figure drawing with Frazetta's sensitive finishes. A handful of panels are overworked, but are offset by especially fine drawings of the main characters (see interior page below). This is number 5 of 6 John Wayne Adventure issues with Frazetta art and/or covers (not including reprints) and number 5 of 6 John Wayne Adventure issues with Williamson art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Frazetta, Williamson or John Wayne Adventure issues. See also this blog's Frazetta checklist, Williamson checklist or Top 10 Frazetta comics.
