    Description

    Frank Frazetta - Original Art for The Durango Kid #15 - Complete 6-page Dan Brand and Tipi story (Magazine Enterprises, 1952). From a fairly early point in his professional career, many Frazetta scholars see this run of "Dan Brand" stories (that ran for 16 issues beginning in the late 1940s) as a pivotal point in his career. One can trace Frazetta's development as an artist very clearly through this run, with late examples such as this exhibiting the power and strong graphic sense that would propel Frazetta to super-stardom a mere decade later. Both pencilled and inked by Frazetta, the end result is a masterpiece of graphic storytelling. With powerful composition and lush, yet delicate inks, Frazetta's work in this piece sets him apart from the vast majority of comic artists working in the field at the time. As is often the case, the published work, with its inherent limitations regarding reproduction and printing, pales beside the originals. Once seen, it becomes even more obvious why Frazetta is revered among professionals and fans alike. In excellent condition, the pages measure approximately 21" x 13.5".
