Letters from Art

Pal,
Recommended viewing: the newly rereleased Fire and Ice DVD which is an animated movie from 1982 by Ralph Bakshi and Frank Frazetta.  With script by Marvel Comic’s own Roy Thomas and Gerry Conway!  Disc two is a full length Frazetta documentary!  Pretty cool treatment of Frazetta’s childhood as a (pretty nonthreatening) gang member in 1940’s Brooklyn, then a comic book penciller, and finally ultimate worldbeater fantasy artist.  Remember that all those Robert E. Howard stories had been around for decades, but when published with Frazetta covers, sold millions, and probably directory inspired killer rock and roll imagery, Dungeons & Dragons, and all our favorite 80’s barbarian flicks.
Lost in Hyborea,
Art.
