Eerie v3 #2 - Frank Frazetta cover, Alex Toth art

Frank Frazetta
Eerie v3 #2, 1966 - Frank Frazetta's first cover for the series is pretty static, especially compared to his other works for Warren. The layout and theme also appear rather straightforward. Inside, Alex Toth draws a gallery owner's quest to find the talented artist of disturbingly realistic paintings. His drawings and page layouts are reliably solid. Interestingly, Toth's panel shapes become more erratic as the story nears its horrific climax. Other artists in this issue include Angelo Torres, Reed Crandall and Gray Morrow. This is number 1 of 7 Eerie issues with Frazetta art and/or covers and number 1 of 5 Eerie issues with Toth art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Frazetta, Toth or Eerie issues. See also this blog's Frazetta checklist, Top 10 Frazetta comics or Toth checklist.
