- 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" paperbacks 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 Unpublished sketches.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 Includes the Zodiac Calendar (all girls, of course) from Gent Magazine from 1962, along with a previously unpublished alternate drawing. Pages of previously unpublished nude studies.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 which includes a full page nude Frank did especially for Linsner in 1995. It's shown here.
