As much as his famed monsters, beasts and barbarians; from Vampirella to Weird Science, to Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Pellucidar and Dejah Thoris, Princess of Mars; no one is better renowned for exquisite renderings of exotic women than Frazetta — the World’s greatest Heroic Fantasy artist. But, until now, only the most ardent collectors achieved acquisition of the elusive grail items from the short period of Frazetta’s early-1960s Men’s magazine, and risqué paperback book, illustrations. Often selling for hundreds of dollars each, these rare publications bridged Frazetta’s exodus from traditional comics, to the advent of his now-legendary Conan, and Death Dealer paintings. Expanded, with a chapter of flirtatious Frazetta movie poster art and the most seductive romance comics ever — including the legendary Untamed Love, collected for the first time with its original, vintage color intact; Vanguard continues their official, authorized Vanguard Frazetta Classics line by presenting, the most complete collection ever, of rare, vintage, Sensuous Frazetta.
