- Full Description
Vampirella, Dejah Thoris, The Egyptian Queen, The Golden Girl. No one renders exotic women better than Frazetta. And until now, only the most ardent collectors possessed the elusive grail items Frank drew for early-1960s men's magazine and "soft-core" paperback interiors--here are ALL of these rarebies. Also five complete stories all from the original art AND from the color comic appearance, including "Untamed Love." Little Annie Fanny. Sexy movie posters. Unpublished sketches. There's a LOT here! Moderate nudity.
Often selling for hundreds of dollars each, these rare publications bridged Frazetta's exodus from traditional comics and ghosting for Al Capp on Li'l Abner, to his now legendary stint on the Ace Books Edgar Rice Burroughs novels and then quickly on to Conan and his prolific work on paperback covers. Includes the Zodiac Calendar (all girls, of course) from Gent Magazine from 1962, along with a previously unpublished alternate drawing. Pages of previously unpublished nude studies.
Some of these illustrations have been previously collected in questionably-legal, knock-off collections by enterprising fans--usually with mediocre reproduction. Now, in an affordable volume, Vanguard presents the most complete collection ever, of rare, vintage, Sensuous Frazetta and all handsomely reproduced, as much as possible from the original art or from top quality printings.
Lengthy 3-page introduction by contemporary good-girl artist Joseph Michael Linsner.
This deluxe slipcased edition is the only way to get the special variant cover, but even more important, the extra 16-page Portfolio. Here you will find original art from House of Greystoke's 1965 Girl from Farris's, the 1968 nude frontis for the ERB Pellucidar portfolio, rare paperback covers, such as The Busy Body (1967), To Catch a Crooked Girl (1971), The High Side (1977), The Godmakers (1970), Black Emperor (1973), Flashman, Satanika, National Lampoon and Heavy Metal covers, and more. And one I'd never seen before: two soft-core Lancer paperback covers, The Man from S.T.U.D. with Frank himself PICTURED on the cover!
