    Frank Frazetta Shock Illustrated #4 "Came the Dawn" Illustration Original Art (EC, c. 1954). The next-to-the-last panel from the story "Came the Dawn" which was slated to be in the unpublished issue #4 of this title. The character Bob Ames is an obvious Frazetta self-portrait. The panel was produced in graphite and blue pencil, and it is partially inked. It has some stains in the lower portion. This unfinished panel (stains and all) was reprinted in the 2006 Shock Illustrated hardback collection by Gemstone Publishing. It is signed in the upper left of the 8" x 6.25" image area, and glass front framed to 18.75" x 18". There is a 6.5" chip of the top right edge of the black frame. The toned Bristol board has graphite smudges.
