Introducing FRANK FRAZETTA'S Dan Brand & Tipi (1949)

This debut adventure of Frazetta's Dan Brand and Tipi appeared first in 1949 in The Durango Kid #1. It was reprinted in 1953 in White Indian #11, and eventually found its way onto the Golden Age blog of the legendary Mr. Door Tree. From there it was uploaded to comicbookplus by a user called jonemas, whereat I discovered it. (Yeah, I know the whole saga has been collected in a deluxe hardcover volume, but I'm cheap.) Makes me wish Mr. F had doing the Tarzan strip, too. 

NOTE: On the first page, it says Dan Brand is an ancestor of Steve Brand. Steve Brand, in case you were wondering, is the secret identity of The Durango Kid.

Thanks for the comic and the background info. I wish I'd seen this when I was a kid, though I was only two when it debuted.
