Jack Frazetta

Wonderful cover which brings to mind a typical Frank Frazetta composition. Something like Conan The Destroyer.
Any idea why it's so discolored?

It looks like the drawing was glued down on a board, and glue yellowed. But it's hard to say...

Jack Frazetta

Frazetta commented on Kirby in TCJ.

I loved Jack Kirby. Jack Kirby was fabulous, even though he wasn’t a great draftsman. He didn’t paint or anything. And certainly wasn’t versatile. But boy, get that “Slam, Bang, Pow” stuff and he was great.

Did you know Kirby at all?

I didn’t meet Kirby until only a few years ago, believe it or not.

Is that right?

First time. It was really funny. They were having a big to-do for me over in California, and Jack showed up. He was kind of startled when I told him I was such a big fan of his. He looked at me, “You’ve got to be kidding.” It was kind of cute.
