Frank Frazetta 1928-2010

From Comic Book Resources: "Renowned fantasy and comic-book artist Frank Frazetta passed away today as the result of a stroke. He was 82." More of the obituary here.

A variety of Frazetta's art at the American Art Archives.

My favorite Creepy cover! R.I.P., Frank!


  1. Such a huge loss to art fans. By the way, that CREEPY cover hangs on my bedroom wall... one of those old Captain Company posters!

  2. I posted that same cover at the S&P... one of my favorites too...
    RIP Frank Frazetta.

  3. Looks like that Creepy werewolf has a few other fans! (Probably quite a few.)

    What's the "S&P"?

  4. This is sad news, indeed. Frazetta's contributions to the icons of pop culture are indelible.

  5. Couldn't agree more, John. I am still trying to get my mind around the loss -- he was the one to whom we compared everyone else, for decades... A sad day indeed.

    Mike, the S&P is the Skull & Pumpkin, my Hallowe'en and Horror 'pub' online (just my blog).

    Nice blog! I added it to my blogs list.
