    Frank Frazetta Jongor Fights Back Paperback Book Cover Painting Study Original Art (Popular Library, 1967). The fantastic "lost world" (located in the vast outback of Australia) that jungle lord Jongor called home never looked better than in the power-packed paperback book covers painted by Frank Frazetta. And this cover is a special treat for those of us who love dinosaurs mixed in with their rugged heroes and scantily-clad damsels in distress.
    This classic cover is certainly a fan favorite, perhaps the best of the three Jongor covers Frazetta completed. It's an instantly recognizable image, with the heroic Jongor aiming his arrow at a group of pterodactyls, while a gorgeous woman hangs on to the massive lizard creature that both are riding. This is fantasy art at its very finest, by the undisputed master of the genre -- Frank Frazetta. Heritage Auctions has previously sold the fully finished cover (based on this study-piece) for $179,250.00.
    Created in marker and watercolor over graphite on paper with an image area of 5.5" x 9". The paper section is larger and has been quarter-folded. Overall in Very Good condition.
    From the Randy Bowen Collection.
