Western Hearts #2 - Al Williamson / Frank Frazetta art

Western Hearts v1 #2, 1950 - While trailblazing the Southwest, famed scout Kit Carson falls in love with the daughter of a wealthy New Mexico landowner. Al Williamson makes a rare early contribution to the romance genre, although his western tales are plentiful. Ably drawn, this brief story has little action, focusing instead on dialogue and character interactions. Frank Frazetta provides the inks, bringing texture and flourish to the pencils. Though only two pages, their work easily outshines the rest of the issue. This effort reminds me of their similar collaborative work on John Wayne Adventure Comics, published around the same time period. Other artists in this issue include John Celardo and John Severin. This is number 1 of 1 Western Hearts issues with Williamson art and/or covers and number 1 of 1 Western Hearts issues with Frazetta art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Frazetta, Williamson or Western Hearts issues. See also this blog's Williamson checklistFrazetta checklist or Top 10 Frazetta comics.
