Fantasy Artist Frank Frazetta, 82, Dies in Florida
PHILADELPHIA (AP).- Pioneering fantasy artist Frank Frazetta has died in a Fort Myers, Fla., hospital. He was 82.

Manager Rob Pistella says Frazetta died Monday morning, a day after suffering a stroke. He says Frazetta had been out to dinner with his daughters Sunday before falling ill.

Frazetta is renowned for his sci-fi and fantasy art. He created covers and illustrations for more than 150 books and comic books, including Conan the Barbarian and Tarzan.

His daughter, Heidi Frazetta Grabin, says she is hopeful that a dispute among siblings over their father's artwork has been resolved through recent negotiations.

His son, Frank Frazetta, was charged in December with using a backhoe to break into the artist's museum in the Poconos and trying to remove dozens of paintings.
