A Candle In The Wind

Frank Frazetta died today.

I tell you, I feel old today. In the last couple of years, we lost Gary Gygax, we lost Dave Arneson. I just found out yesterday that Dr. J. Eric Holmes, the man who brought D&D to the mass market and wrote the first Basic version of the game, is no longer with us... and today, one of the great artists of the 20th century... the guy who brought Conan back from obscurity, the guy who did things for Edgar Rice Burroughs that the man himself would never have dreamed.

Rest in peace, Frank. At least you're with Ellie, now.
