ANOTHER GLOWING REVIEW GF Willmetts review for SFcrowsnest: "Just when I thought I had a decent selection of Frank Frazetta artbooks, I couldn’t resist pulling an over-size hardback on the subject. What does make it stand out is seeing Frazetta’s preliminary designs and a habit of repainting or improving the original paintings sent to various publishers which makes this book unique and of interest to artists. It should be reassuring that even the best is never satisfied with his work and capable of doing the same piece over. If you want to see Frazetta’s art at a large size without necessarily pulling art prints, then this is a good option. 9 years after his death, Frazetta is still the benchmark to equal and even he tried to out-do himself."
