Frank Frazetta: 1928 - 2010

Master fantasy and sci fi artist Frank Frazetta has died of a stroke at the age of 82. Frazetta is most closely associated with Robert E. Howard's "Conan the Barbarian" character. His signature work often featured bare-chested "sword and sorcery" heroes, helpless women, and fantasy creatures. Shown above is my favorite painting of his - The Death Dealer. One of the most iconic, in my opinion. Thanks Frank for fueling my imagination and giving life to my inner-most dreams.

  1. "Death Dealers" is the nickname attached to
    1st Battalion 67th Armor Regiment,
    2nd Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division.

    A goggle search will find the history of this highly decorated unit and some links about an unfortunate soldier's suicide.
