Frank Frazetta Family Feud Ends

An intense feud between the children of famed fantasy artist Frank Frazetta has apparently been settled amicably. The siblings had been at each others' throats (metaphorically) over control of their father's vast collection of paintings, which is valued in the tens of millions of dollars. The nadir of their fight probably came when one of the sons was caught with a backhoe allegedly trying to break into the Frazetta museum to get at some of the paintings.

Read the whole story here.

For decades, Frank Frazetta created amazing fantasy art for everything from Conan comics to Creepy covers to promotional art for Battlestar Galactica (such as the painting of female Viper pilots used in a TV Guide above).
