    Description

    Frank Frazetta - Original Cover Art for Ghost Rider #3 (ME, 1950). Frank Frazetta is widely held to be the greatest artist to work in the comic book field. Ironically, his actual body of work on comic books is very small. The cover art offered here is one of his best. It is both finely rendered and highly dramatic. The main theme of the piece is a train robbery. It is the ferocity of the explosion that has made this a true classic, and a coveted book by collectors. The art is in exceptional condition. The logo appears to be hand painted and is undoubtedly original. There is a small paste over (drawn) on the Ghost Rider's head, with some slight discoloration, but overall, this is an unforgettable image. Image area measures 13" x 18".
