Vanguard Frazetta Classics: Book 2 - 1st printing. Story and art by Frank Frazetta. 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. When our country was young, the truly great Americans were the intrepid pioneers of the backwoods, which were thick and sown with sudden death, the greatest of the backwoodsmen was Dan Brand! Brand is a colonial-era Philadelphia socialite who travails the Western wilderness to revenge the murder of his fiancee. After a battle to the death with a bear, Brand is found barely alive by Chief Great Eagle and his young son, Tipi, who nurse him back to health. Brand stays on to learn the ways of the forest and of the Indian. Peter Bradford, the murderer of Brand's fiancee reappears as a rum runner and guns dealer, to kill Great Eagle. Brand avenges the deaths of his fiance and Great Eagle. Brand's journey transforms him into the hardened survivalist known as White Indian who, is joined by his new, Indian blood-brother, Tipi to brave the wilds of the New World.
