    Description

    Frank Frazetta - Hand Colored/Remarqued/Signed Buck Rogers Famous Funnies Print, #25/50 (Russ Cochran,1972). This is a fantastic offering on several levels. First, the subject has mass appeal and notoriety. Secondly, Frank Frazetta is considered by many to be the greatest artist who ever worked in comic books. And best of all, this piece represents what is perhaps the quintessential Frank Frazetta cover, from Weird Science-Fantasy #29. This art work was intended as a cover for Famous Funnies, but was rejected for its overt violence. Highly desirable as a print as well, it is extremely well executed; bright, bold, and evocative. The condition is superb. A very small edition, the intention was to publish 50 pieces, but Frazetta only ever finished 40, making the edition even a bit more exclusive; this print is number 25. The artist's hand is evident throughout the piece in the beautiful and intricate hand coloring. It is hand signed, dated, and numbered by Frazetta, with a killer 2" x 4" sketch of a sabretooth tiger remarqued in the lower right corner. The print's main image area is approximately 13" x 17", and the art is in Excellent condition. Also included is the original, photocopied COA from Russ Cochran. From the Don Vernon Collection.
