    Kelly Freas - "Armada" Amazing Stories Cover Original Art (1991). Acrylic on board with an 10.75" x 16" image area. In Excellent condition and signed at the lower right. This detailed cosmic attack scene was created for the cover of the relaunch issue of Amazing Stories. When asked what his remarkable career cover totals were, Kelly Freas responded in an interview, "There were a couple hundred Astounding/Analog covers over more than 25 years; about 90 to 100 paperbacks for DAW; 60 or so Laser Books; a dozen for Starblaze, which I also edited ; count also Ace, Ballantine, Columbia, the older pulps, which came and went like bubbles...anyway, you get the idea. No one knows for sure. Must be in the thousands by now." No SF art collection could be considered complete without a Freas example!
