Adventure Comics #163 - Frank Frazetta art

Adventure Comics v1 #163, 1951 - Similar to Don Quixote, an old man dons makeshift armor to fight bandits in a western town. Unknown to him, a disguised Shining Knight arrives, helping him in surreptitious ways. Frank Frazetta's last effort on the series has a distinct quaintness. Mesquite Mike and his chivalrous ways is portrayed with humor and empathy. As with previous issues, Frazetta's artwork surpasses everything else in the issue. This story was later reprinted in Masterworks Series of Great Comic Book Artists #2. Other artists in this issue include Ralph Mayo, Al Plastino and George Papp. This is number 8 of 8 Adventure Comics issues with Frazetta art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Frazetta or Adventure Comics issues.
