Buster Crabbe #9 - Frank Frazetta ad


Buster Crabbe v1 #9, 1953 - Frank Frazetta contributes a stunning public service ad for the Boy Scouts of America. Within a single page, the artist captures the excitement of the annual jamboree. A wagon train and modern locomotive represent tradition and optimism as they both head toward their California destination. Among the several scouts pictured, one looks across a seemingly endless landscape of tents, suggesting the large scale of the event. Even in black and white, Frazetta demonstrates consideable skill. This ad was re-used in a smaller format in Heroic Comics #83. This is number 5 of 5 Buster Crabbe issues with Frazetta art and/or covers.
