Frank Frazetta dead at 82

NYTimes obituary. Frazetta's art graced the covers of all the Conan pulps I read as a kid. See here for more.

I always preferred Frazetta to his competitor Boris Vallejo because Frazetta's subtle textures left more to the imagination -- his covers hinted at dark mysteries yet undiscovered.

"Egyptian Queen"
