Frank Frazetta Tribute: Thun'da in "When the Earth Shook" (ME;1952)

In honor of the great fantasy illustrator, Frank Frazetta, who passed away yesterday, the Catacombs presents "When the Earth Shook" from Thun'da #1 (originally published by Magazine Enterprises; 1952).

This is the third (of four) Thun'da, King of the Congo tales from that seminal issue, which was superbly written by DC Comics/Silver Age master-storyteller, Gardner Fox.

The Catacombs is grateful to Don "Zu-Gogo" Falkos for providing the scans for this story.

The final Frank Frazetta story starring Thun'da will be posted on Thursday.

I think it's wonderful to leave such a marvelous legacy, of the work that Frank Frazetta has done to what one would call legendary.Both the serious and the more entertaining sides of the man tell of a creator who gave all of himself in his masterpieces.It's really not at all corny to consider Frazetta a modern day Michelangelo,he deserved to be that and more.His life reflected those of his characters like Conan,he took the blows and ran with the punches like any tough italian from New York.But he had grace and class as well.And that's something you don't see much anymore.Despite many tragedies and heartache.Frazetta lives on.Liam
