Creators around the Internet are reporting the same thing, and The Beat has confirmed with his agent: That legendary artist Frank Frazetta has passed away at the age of 82. Frazetta was well-known for his dynamic, rugged art on seminal comics characters ranging from Conan the Barbarian to Shining Knight to Vampirella. One of Frazetta’s most iconic images — the Death Dealer, painted in 1973 — eventually was used in comics, novels, and even a CD. – From Newsarama
