Fantasy and Comic Artist Frank Frazetta Passes Away

Legendary fantasy and comic artist Frank Frazetta has passed away due to a stroke on May 10 2010. He was 82 years old.

"A New York City native whose career began in the comic book field at the end of the Golden Age, Frazetta was best known for his fantasy illustrations. From his character and genre-defining run of cover images depicting sword-and-sorcery hero Conan The Barbarian to his own haunting Death Dealer painting and character, the artist found immense popularity across a wide spectrum of fans. From fantasy buffs to heavy metal bands and from comic collector's to western enthusiasts, Frazetta's paintings not only inspired many imitators and followers but also made him incredibly popular and comparatively wealthy for a creator in the field of genre art."
