The longest comic-book run of Frank Frazetta's career! The hall of fame illustrator and icon of fantastic art, Frazetta, is best known for his oil paintings of buxom beauties and brawny barbarians (Conan, Tarzan, Death Dealer) which have sold for as much as $1.5 million. But Frazetta first revealed his unique talents in comic book and strip work in the 1950s. The Dan Brand-White Indian stories originally appeared as a backup feature in early-1950s issues of Durango Kid. Authorized by and under exclusive agreement with Frank Frazetta, the Vanguard Frazetta Classics line continues with this long-awaited, quality collection which, in addition to all of Frazetta's White Indian work, includes other Heroic Frazetta comics stories.
