Just when people were starting to wonder if Frank Frazetta was immortal, too.... neutral
If it wasn't for Frazetta, Conan the Barbarian wouldn't have been half as intimidating (for the readers, at least) in the early days. But when you see Frazetta's well-depicted images of Conan beefed out and standing on a mountain of corpses as he hacks madly at some hapless spearman or something, you just know that Conan means business.
I also play Age of Conan here and there (among other characters, Ankaratta the Stygian Demonologist, if you feel like swinging by the Cimmeria server and chopping my head off while barking "she stinks of foul sorcery" or something...), and that game's existence--as well as the whole Hyborean mythos--owes a great deal to Frazetta. Even if his body proved to be mortal in the end, may his works endure forever. neutral
