The longest comic-book run of Frank Frazetta's career! First appearing as a backup feature in Durango Kid in 1949, Dan Brand - known as the "White Indian" - is a colonial-era city boy whose life is marred by tragedy. When the death of his fiancee sends Brand through the wilderness on a trek to kill her murderer, he also begins a journey that will transform him into a hardened pioneer survivalist. The powerful sequential work of Frank Frazetta is in the spotlight in this collection, with all interior pages scanned from original comic-book issues and digitally cleaned. As the first White Indian story declares, "When our country was young... and the truly great Americans were the intrepid pioneers of the backwoods, where the woods were thick and sown with sudden death... the greatest of the backwoodsmen was Dan Brand!" Join us as a wily pioneer and his sidekick Tipi brave the wilds of the American "New World" and a young cartoonist takes an industry by storm with his powerful talents in the 1940s and 1950s.
Frank Frazetta was one of the most important comics artists working during the 20th-century. Getting his start in the 1940s drawing for the LIL' ABNER strips, he would go on to infiltrate the imaginations of thousands of fantasy fans through his portrayals of characters such as Conan and Tarzan. His muscle-y heroes and curvy damsels (all scantily clad) would become almost ubiquitous with the genre. Frazetta also drew for MAD Magazine, designed the covers for numerous pulpy books and movie posters--his first was for Woody Allen's 1965 WHAT'S NEW PUSSYCAT? He died in 2010 from a stroke, after his wife Eleanor died and his children became embroiled in some nasty disputes over the rights to his work.
