Frank Frazetta (Fritz) became a legendary artist in his lifetime, one best known for his powerful illustrative work. Who among us of the appropriate age hasn't bought a John Carter of Mars or Conan the Barbarian paperback reprint on the strength of the cover alone? But that doesn't mean Frazetta wasn't a master funny animal cartoonist, too. See for yourself! Early in his career, he did a fair share of funny animal work. This Dodger the Squirrel story comes from Coo Coo Comics No. 41, September 1948.
You want to see more kids' comics from Frazetta, right? Then, boy, do I have good news! Craig Yoe and IDW Publishing have collected all of Frank Frazetta's funny work in one volume! Needless to say, I've already got mine on preorder. I know you will want to do the same. Just click HERE!
And just for good measure, let's do a seldom seen Jack Bradbury story from the same issue! Masterful, indeed! For those that may not know, Bradbury is at the top of my personal favorites list. Isn't it easy to see why?
This ad comes from the back cover of the same issue. A flashlight, much like a pocket knife, was one of those tools a boy longed for to feel grownup like his Dad.
