Marigold went over to the little girl and said "What's the matter little girl?  Can I help with anything?"

Frank Frazetta

Frank Frazetta is dead.  Possibly the greatest fantasy artist of all time and certainly one of the most influential, Frazetta's been spared the sight of his family squabbling over his artwork and gone to paint in a better place.

About Me

Peter Bangs Married, two kids, mortgage, working for my wife, looking after our two year old son and frankly terrified. Welcome to my little bit of sanity. I've spent 39 of my 46 years wanting to create stories and comics and achieving very little (a 200 page comic and a 24hour comic 10 years or more ago and very little since) so this is where I'm getting serious. Do work, put it out there, move on. Currently blog, reviews and a bunch of artwork will appear here, comics will be hosted on issuu on the words and pictures page. Now let loose the dogs of war. ( that would have been so much more effective in capitals with lots of exclamation points. )
