The comics industry recently lost two legends: Frank Frazetta (Conan) and Dick Giordano (DC Comics). Both were amazing artists and huge influences to creators and the comics industry alike. They may be gone, but their art lives on.
You may know Frank Frazetta from his work in fantasy paintings, giving the look and identity to Conan the Barbarian, but you may not have known that Frazetta was a child prodigy, drew funnybooks in the 1940s, and got his break into fine art and painting through Mad Magazine.
One of the most influential artists of all time, Frazetta's memory lives on through the numerous album covers, book jackets and movie posters, where his painted art defined a generation.
An accomplished artist and inker at Charlton Comics and DC Comics, Dick Giordano has pretty much drawn every super hero character you've ever seen. But his art was just the beginning of his impact on comics. As an editor he helped to break and train new talent in the comics industry and as Executive Editor at DC Comics, he oversaw the ushering of the modern age of comics by greenlighting such projects as the Watchmen, the Dark Knight Returns, Crisis on Infinite Earths (Which he also inked!), Swamp Thing and the creation of the Vertigo line of comics and many more.
If you're a fan of DC Comics and comics from 1980 onwards, Dick Giordano has influenced and impacted the comics you read and we take some time to celebrate the work he accomplished, up until his last published work on Jonah Hex #51
