American Icon Frank Frazetta Passes Away at 82

If you do not know who Frank Frazetta is, it will not take long to learn about him. He was an American artist best known for his depictions of Conan The Barbarian. For some, Frank's work was as much a part of Conan as Robert E. Howards writing. His other major character, The Death Dealer has remained a classic fantasy image for several generations now. His work in comics and book covers remains some of the most memorable and thousands of artists were influenced by him. It is a sad day to see such talent leave this world.
