    Description

    Frank Frazetta Thun'da, King of the Congo #1 Title Page Original Art (Magazine Enterprises, 1952). The title page for the second story "Monsters from the Mists!" is rendered by the legendary comic artist and painter, Frank Frazetta. He signed in the bottom of the first panel of the page, which is the 11th page of the issue in which it appears. The subtle shading and detail on the charging elephants is staggering! A gorgeous page of jungle action by the man who would go on to define Tarzan novel covers for a whole generation of readers. This image is created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 13" x 18.5". The title is a stat paste-up with some glue residue near it. There are stripped in text corrections and the story title is a paste-up stat as well. These have toned and have some glue residue near them also. The page is overall lightly toned and in Very Good condition.
