Frank Frazetta has been a favorite of mine since I was a boy reading the Tarzan, Conan & John Carter of Mars book series with Frazetta covers & sometimes Frazetta drawings inside.. I would stare at the artwork for hours daydreaming. Then came Creepy, Eerie & Vampirella oversize comics geared toward adults but the kiddies grabbed them up as fast as they could. Frazetta's work has an old world master's touch & no one has ever been such a gifted storyteller though his paintings as Frazetta. Each of his images tells a wondrous story. When we reopen next year we plan to host a group Frank Frazetta Tribute Show.

His Molly Hatchet album covers enthralled me for hours as a kid. His piles of skulls, limbs and dead warriors with the Barbarian triumphant on the top of the macabre pile with a young nubile are just incredible.
For me, it was Frazetta's sciene fiction cover art, particularly for Edgar Rice Burroughs' Barsoom series. The strength, pride and heroism he was able to capture in both his male and female figures still moves me, and the atmosphere is so rich and sensual. True eye candy.
