R.I.P. Frank Frazetta: Feb. 9th, 1928 – May 10th, 2010
Frank Frazetta passed away today. For the greater portion of the last century, Frank Frazetta was everywhere: on HEAVY METAL magazine covers, movie posters, in the work of a thousand disciples and fans trying to emulate his incredibly vibrant style. It’s hard to imagine the universe of comic books, paperback novels, and even filmmaking without his influence; his images were so synonymous with fantasy and sci-fi that they will forever remain an integral part of our collective imagination. He will be missed, but his memory will remain with us forever, as will his curvaceous beauties and striking heroes.
