Overview


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.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This gloriously inappropriate '50s comic about a great backwoodsman and "his little Indian friend Tipi" having adventures in 1770 is most notable for showcasing the work of future art icon Frazetta. It's one of those stories of white people becoming the best at other cultures; the White Indian Dan Brand was White Indian's ancestor, who roamed the frontier killing bears after his fiancée was shot in front of him. The pictures are lovely, as expected in a book sold on the reputation of its artist, but strangely static, as though Frazetta was used to thinking in terms of images, not storytelling flow. There's lots of muscled male skin on display, as the lead is nearly naked, which lends new interpretation to the frequent wrestling. Reproduction is dodgy, with fuzziness and color leakage. Interspersed with the Indian comics are true-life war stories and PSAs. Be warned, this is a fan-based publication, with numerous typos in the back cover copy and no serious explanation of the strip's history. Those interested in buying it will already know what it is and why they want it: it's more work by a beloved fantasy illustrator.(Apr.)
