In Memory of Frank Frazetta

Frank Frazetta passed away yesterday. I can't say that I've been extremely fond of his work but there's no denying it's influence. Covers to fantasy books owe a debt of gratitude to his covers in the sixties for Edgar Rice Burroughs and Robert E. Howard novels. He won a Hugo in 1966 for those covers and I was going to talk about Creepy Magazine which he provided covers for later this week.
