    Frank Frazetta Vampirella #11 Preliminary Cover Sketch (Woman with a Scythe) Original Art (c. 1971). The cover to Vampirella #11 (later reprinted on Creepy #91) featured an unforgettable image of a half-nude woman, both arms outstretched, in one hand she holds a snake and in the other a great, bloodied blade, held high. The visage is so startling, it burns itself into your memory. Creating iconic imagery like this is a rare gift, yet it seems to be stock-in-trade for Frank Frazetta. Here is a rare item, indeed. A small color sketch for Frazetta's famous "Woman with a Scythe," which was originally printed by Warren Publishing, and later transformed into a highly-successful poster. The overall size is approximately 4.5" x 6". Although relatively small, Frazetta doesn't miss a thing, and all the details, which he eventually expanded into the final image, are here. The art is clean and bright. The borders are irregular; otherwise, the art is in Excellent condition. Not signed.
