    Description

    Frank Frazetta Hand Colored/Remarqued/Signed Buck Rogers Famous Funnies Print #1/2 (1971). This is an outstanding offering on many levels -- first, the subject has mass appeal and notoriety, secondly, 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 Frazetta comic book cover, from Weird Science-Fantasy #29. This scene was originally drawn as a cover for Famous Funnies, but it was rejected for its overt violence. The scene is extremely well executed, bright, bold, and evocative.

    This print was a very small edition. The intention by Russ Cochran was to publish 50 pieces, but Frazetta only ever finished 40, making the edition even a bit more exclusive. However, this piece may be a trial run for the regular edition as it is numbered #1/2. 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 beautiful 2" x 3" ink sketch of a female nude, remarqued in the lower right corner. The print's main image area is approximately 12.5" x 16", and the piece is in Excellent condition.
