“COVER: The extraterrestrial gruesifixion is once again the work of Frank “If You Think I’m Gonna Let You Keep the Original Art When I Can Get Ten Gees a Shot for Them from Collectors You’re Outta Your Gourd” Frazetta, generally acclaimed Thing-of-the-Mountain around fantasy-illustration circles for his famous Conan the Adventurer paperback covers and his eye-splitting National Lampoon work (cover, April, 1971; ‘Dragula’ cover, November 1971). Mr Frazetta now lives deep in the Poconos, where he is confident their Xykloscopic Detectors will never find him.”
