Eerie v3 #7 - Frank Frazetta cover, Steve Ditko art

Frank Frazetta
Eerie v3 #7, 1967 - Uncommonly understated, this Frank Frazetta cover lacks the impact of other Warren magazines. The original painting is horizontal, forcing the publisher into fitting it within a vertical format. Inside, Steve Ditko's tale is about a hit man who undergoes surgery to change his face and elude capture. The artist uses gray washes to thoughtful effect throughout the story (see interior page below). Unfortunately, the simplicity of the drawings, repetitive layouts and subpar title page mar the whole effort. This story was reprinted in >Eerie v3 #135 and the Eerie v3 1972 annual. Other artists in this issue include Gene Colan and Dan Adkins. This is number 5 of 8 Eerie magazine issues with Ditko art and/or covers and number 4 of 7 Eerie issues with Frazetta art and/or covers (not including reprints).
