Buster Crabbe #4 - Frank Frazetta art & cover

Buster Crabbe v1 #4, 1952 - On his first of two covers for the series, Frank Frazetta displays both his artistic strengths and weaknesses. The cowboy leaps from a helicopter to save a damsel in distress, yet his perspective is far from credible. Buster's outstretched arm is poorly foreshortened and the woman is disproportionately too large for her horse (who also seems to be missing a foreleg). Despite all this, the young Frazetta compensates with his exhilarating drawing style. Compare this to his straightforward and informative Red Cross ad inside (see interior page below). This is number 2 of 5 Buster Crabbe issues with Frazetta art and/or covers.
