    The famed artist died yesterday.

    Known nearly as well as old Boris or Elmore, he produced Brak’s favorite picture:

    May you hold your own in the halls of Valhalla, Frank!

    Make sure you get Odin to do a sitting between drinking games and feats of strength.

    That pic is of one of his old pulp characters, Death Dealer, if I’m not mistaken. I have a graphic novel of DD, written by Glenn Danzig and painted by Frazetta from the late 90’s. Epic fantasy, and fantastically gory.

    RIP, Mr. Frazetta.

    It inspired a series of books as well as the graphic novels you have ( and at least one other set of graphic novels ).

    The books were by James Silke. Gath of Baal was the name they gave him. Classic, gory barbarian fun that I still re-read from time to time.

    The documentary ” Painting with fire ” was about him as well ( As Monty well knows if I recall correctly ). Interesting cat he was.

    T is right, that pretty much is my fav piece of Art. He was an original and hugely talented at conveying pure Badass.

    Yes, and there was a Frank Frazetta museum, in Pennsylvania.

    The documentary is fascinating, and tells how he was involved in the making of the original Conan the Barbarian movie, along with many other Frank F. stories.
