Weird Fantasy v2 #21 - Al Williamson / Frank Frazetta cover, Williamson art

Al Williamson / Frank Frazetta
Weird Fantasy v2 #21, 1953 - A new rocket hauls cargo to other planets in record time, yet crew members seem to die accidentally on each journey. The artwork is dependable and straightforward with very little flourish. Al Williamson's pencils are merely adequate, but meet expectations. Infinitely better is his cover collaboration with Frank Frazetta. Juxtaposing futuristic and primitive figures, Williamson creates a stunning composition with depth and beauty. His excellent drawing is further elevated by Frazetta's exquisite detailing, especially on the foreground character. Other artists in this issue include Will Elder, Jack Kamen, Joe Orlando, John Severin. This is number 3 of 3 Weird Fantasy issues with Frazetta art and/or covers and number 8 of 8 Weird Fantasy issues with Williamson art and/or covers.
