Legendary fantasy artist Frank Frazetta died of a stroke on May 10. The Pocono Record reports:
Frank Frazetta, one of the most renowned fantasy illustrators of the 20th century, died this afternoon at a hospital near his home in Boca Grande, Florida. He was 82.
Frazetta had been out to dinner with his daughters Sunday but suffered a stroke at his Boca Grande home later that night and was taken to Lee Memorial Hospital, manager Rob Pistella said.
It was just a short time ago that the family resolved an acrimonious dispute over control of his artwork.
