History of Frank Frazetta in Comic Book Art

Frank Frazetta began working In the comic book industry in 1944 after taking a job in Bernard Baily’s studio, aiding with pencil clean-ups. From there he acquired a spot helping ink the comic Snowman, an eight-page story within a one-shot comic entitled Tally-Ho, published by Swappers Quarterly and Almanac/Baily Publishing Company.

Frazetta would receive his first credited work in 1946 after he penciled and inked two pieces in Treasure Comics #7 for Prize Comics. The first, titled Know Your America was his first solo work and the second piece, a single page called Ahoy! Enemy Ship! featured his first original character known as Capt. Kidd Jr.

In 1947, Frazetta left to take a job with Standard Comics. Some of the themes in Frazetta’s work were the benefits of prayer and demonizing the use of drugs told through stories of war and romance. He also frequently did celebrity stories such as a biography of Bert Lancaster.

In the 1960’s Franzetta branched out into promotional posters for movies like What’s New Pussycat as well as paperback covers. He reimagined a new visual depiction of the Conan the Barbarian character which popularized a whole new aesthetic for artists amongst the Sword and Sorcery genre.

Frazetta’s medium of choice was oil paints however he would use watercolours, pencil and ink as well. He was a prominent contributor of cover art for horror and war stories by Warren Publishing, creating for series such as Creepy, Vampirella, Blazing Combat and Eerie.

In 1995, Frazetta was inducted into the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame and then into The Society of Illustrators Hall of Fame in 1998. He was also inducted in the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame in 1999 and awarded the Life Achievement Award from the World Fantasy Conversion in 2001.
