    Description

    Frank Frazetta Vampirella #5 Cover Painting "Cornered" Original Art (Warren Publishing, 1970). With their raw physical power and formidable weapons, Frank Frazetta's warriors are not the kind of opponents you would want to meet on the battlefield -- even if you happen to be a fearsome T-Rex. This savage scene, from a peak period, is Frazetta's renowned masterwork, "Cornered," which was only his second cover ever to appear on the Vampirella title. Frazetta was a revolutionary artist, and in his May 10, 2010 obituary, The New York Times noted, "Frazetta helped define comic book and fantasy heroes like Conan, Tarzan, and John Carter of Mars. His signature images were of strikingly fierce, hard-bodied heroes and bosomy, callipygian damsels." Frazetta took the sex and violence of the pulp fiction of his youth and added even more action, fantasy, and potency, but he also rendered his works with a masterful painting technique seldom seen outside of Fine Art. This oil on masonite chiller, only the second of his Warren Publishing covers we have offered to date, measures approximately 16" x 24" overall, and it's a wonderful example of everything a Frazetta fan could want. The art is in Excellent condition, and it was signed by Frazetta at the lower left.
