Frank Frazetta biography



Frank Frazetta (1928-2010) - Born in Brooklyn NY, Frazetta went to art school at an early age. While still a teenager, his first published work (in collaboration with John Giunta) appeared in Tally Ho Comics in 1944. Subsequently, he began providing the small illustrations for 1-2 page text stories in Standard's funny animal comics. Frazetta soon expanded into other genres, including adventure, science fiction, western, romance and horror. Some of his best work occurred in Personal Love and Famous Funnies (both published by Eastern Color). By the 1960s, he comic book output was relegated to Warren's horror magazines Vampirella, Eerie and Creepy. Frazetta had a classically heroic, idealized style that was advanced and distinctive, particularly for the golden age. At his peak, he demonstrated a high degree of skill and draftsmanship that surpassed most of his peers. Read more on Wikipedia.
