    Frank Frazetta, Original Cover Art for Tim Holt #21 (Magazine Enterprises, 1951). By the time of issue #21, Tim Holt became less of a vehicle for its title cowboy star, and began featuring different characters on the covers. Chief among them was the popular Ghost Rider, who began in issue #6 as the tamely-named Calico Kid. Well, Tim wasn't going to stand still for this! He, in turn, became the Red Mask, Western vigilante. This fantastic cover by Frank Frazetta combines both wild west heroes in a sort of yin-yang design, with Ghost Rider and his horse standing out against a jet black background, and Red Mask on a white field, his six-gun smoking. Very little white-out appears to have been used on this 13" x 18" masterpiece which is in excellent shape, although one of the paste-up type stats placed on the bar between the two figures is missing. This remarkable cover has been professionally matted and framed using conservation plexiglass; the complete piece measures 21" x 28".
