Frank Frazetta (1928-2010)

Monday, May 10, 2010, illustrator Frank Frazetta died at the age of 82. Frazetta had begun creating images for comic books while he was still in his teens. His illustrations for paperback book covers helped to define the image of such adventure characters as Conan and Tarzan. In addition to his paperback work, Frazetta also produced movie posters and record album covers.

According to Heritage Auctions,  Frank Frazetta’s original 1955 artwork for Weird Science-Fantasy #29, considered by many comic art fans to be the finest comic book cover of all time, has been sold in a private treaty sale for $380,000 – almost certainly the most ever paid for a single piece of original American comic book art. It was an outright purchase for immediate payment, with no trade-ins involved.  This cover is also the first major piece of Frazetta art to come up for sale since his death on May 10th.
