    He will be sorely missed. His paintings were one of a kind.

    Possibly my favourite artist of all time, Every piece of his was incredible. Faves include Tales Of The Zombie and countless Warren comics. One of a kind. RIP.

    RIP! He was awesome. I imitated much of his art style back in various art classes in 7th grade onwards.

    R.I.P., this is so sad. I always loved his artwork, especially when it was featured on the cover of CREEPY and EERIE.

    Wow - sad news indeed.

    My favorite Frazetta story is this - one time he lost an original (I think it was kept by the publisher?), but he wanted to hang it in his house. So, he simply painted another copy, from memory - that looked identical to the first one.

    Needless to say - I love his work. I'm sad to hear though that his paintings are being sold - I've always wanted to go to his museum, but never had the chance so far.

    Bummer, he was always in my top 3 favorite artists and did so many iconic paintings. Imagine a world without DeathDealer... it's scary.
    R.I.P. and thanks for the all the awesomeness you brought to my comics, movies and walls.
