FRANK FRAZETTA (1928 - 2010)

"Perhaps best known for his illustrations on the covers of the 1970s Conan paperbacks for Lancer Books and the 1960s Warren Magazines (Creepy, Eerie, Vampirella, Blazing Combat), Frazetta worked closely with EC artists Al Williamson and Angelo Torres as well as on various solo efforts for that and other publishers. He worked on The Shining Knight for DC Comics and the oft-reprinted jungle feature Thun'da created by Gardner Fox.

Frazetta spent years as Al Capp's assistant – often, ghost – on the newspaper strip Lil Abner at the height of its popularity, where he first visualized the astonishingly sexy character Moonbeam McSwine. He went on to draw his own short-lived newspaper comic strip, Johnny Comet, and served as an assistant to Harvey Kurtzman and Will Elder on Playboy's Little Annie Fanny. Kurtzman once referred to Frank as "drawing sexy muscles in places where women don't ordinarily have muscles."

Generally regarded as one of the premiere illustrators of the latter half of the 20th Century, Frank Frazetta's work has been gathered in numerous collections and calendars. His work continues to be licensed for poster reproduction and for adaptation into comic books."*

God in heaven! Giordano and now Frazetta? Who will be left to fill the void once all of the great ones have passed on from us?

The man has died, but his work will live forever. He was one of the greats.



The following stores are all stores that I've dealt with or have become friends with through the forums and I highly recommend them all.

Today is the sixth anniversary of the death of Kurt Vonnegut, great writer and a very nice human being.

May he rest in peace.

One of my favorite authors, if you haven't read "I Am Legend", fans of horror should pick it up, awesome read, and actually much different than the movie.

I consider myself unbelievably fortunate to have met Jack Kirby and Will Eisner at San Diego Comic Con shows in the early 1990s, back when I had the freedom and funds to travel

Was it the most recent issue of Flash that was dedicated to him? I saw it but didn't know he'd recently passed.

Big signatures are REALLY annoying.
