    Frank Frazetta - Original Color Prelim for Conan the Usurper (1966). This fragment of paper, removed from a Frazetta sketchbook, is one of Frank's preliminary color sketches for his cover illustration to the Lancer edition paperback, Conan the Usurper, by Robert E. Howard. It's somewhat tiny, measuring approximately 4" x 4.75" with the lower left corner missing and several tears present, yet it still packs a powerful image for such a small piece. Painted in opaque colors and signed in ink, this micro-masterpiece might well be within reach of collectors on a budget. And who wouldn't want a Frazetta original in their collection?
