Creator: Frank Frazetta
Frazetta finally tires of life on this boring shell of a world and Ascends to a Higher Plane of Existence.

"Frazetta's vision of Conan, as seen on the covers of the Lancer paperback collections of the 60s and 70s, became the definitive picture of the character."

One of the most famous Fantasy Artists. Started in comics in the 1950s and worked his way into movie posters and pinups. His most famous works include illustrations of Conan the Barbarian and John Carter of Mars. He passed away on May 10, 2010 at the age of 82.

Notable not just for his artwork, but also for his savvy business sense: He was able to successfully negotiate to license the artworks he created rather than selling them outright to his clients as was customary at the time. By the time of his death, the artwork he'd collected in his personal museum was worth several million dollars.

Inducted into the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame in 1995 and the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame in 1999.

Similiar artists include Boris Vallejo and Brom.

Trope Namer for Frazetta Man.
