Yesterday, news broke that the legendary artist, Frank Frazetta passed away. Frank was 82 years old and his art ranged from Conan the Barbarian to Shining Knight to Vampirella. He was a master at painting realistic characters in unrealistic settings. Frank is probably best known for his futuristic and fantasy paintings and his amazing figure work inspired a generation of artists. Who in comics has never seen his classic Death Dealer or Moon Maid or Princess of Mars? Frank will forever be known and missed by comic and scifi fans around the world. RIP Frank.
