Official Press Release
Just in time for the upcoming holiday season, Image Comics releases THE FANTASTIC WORLDS OF FRANK FRAZETTA, a mammoth hardcover featuring the first-ever authorized comics based off some of Frazetta’s most famous paintings!
“THE FANTASTIC WORLDS OF FRANK FRAZETTA is a must have book for any Frazetta fan,” Frazetta Comics Editor Jay Fotos said. “We wanted to make this first installment as cool as you can make it so not only did we bring the stories and art in an oversized format, but we stuffed it with as much extra content that we could. There’s well over sixty pages of original material that no fan has ever seen before!”
