Frank Frazetta was a Brooklyn-born illustrator, painter, and sculptor who is best remembered for his fantasy and science fiction artwork that graced the pages and covers of countless comic books, movie posters, graphic novels and other books of fiction.  In particular, he helped define the standard artwork style for the “sword and sorcery” genre.  His contributions to popular music were no less important as his iconic artwork graced album covers throughout the ’70s and early ’80s, as well as a handful in more recent years.  His best known covers are Molly Hatchet’s “Flirtin’ With Disaster,” “Molly Hatchet,” and “Beatin’ The Odds.”  He also provided the cover art for Nazareth’s “Expect No Mercy,” Yngwie Malmsteen’s “War To End All Wars,” and most recently, Wolfmother’s “Wolfmother.”  Frank Frazetta was 82 when he suffered a fatal stroke on May 10, 2010.

  1. One of the TRUE greats of all time– as influential as Jack Kirby! And one of the handful of artists whose work I’ve paid money to acquire, admire, and study… high praise if you knew what a cheapskate I am!
