I loved his stuff . . . had forgotten all about his art. Was very into him back in the late 70's or so. Sad to hear he died.

One of the few artists I liked. It figures. Hope he has a very cool afterlife....

Sweet. John Carter of Mars.

I very much liked Frazetta's work. My dad owned a bookstore when I was kid, there was nothing I enjoyed more than thumbing through the coffee table books of his art.

Damn.

One of my favorite illustrators, have had his books for decades. Last year I had read he was suffering from dementia and his son Frank,Jr. had been caught trying to rip off 90 paintings from his museum in Pennsylvania. The rest of his kids sued and now they are supposedly working as a team to represent the work.

Many have imitated him but his work will live on as some of the best and original.
