Frazetta II: The Legend Continues, published by Comic Images in 1993, was a trading card collection that featured the artwork of one of fantasy art’s biggest stars,  Frank Frazetta.

This collection, published at the height of the trading card bubble of the early 1990’s, was the follow-up to an earlier set, also by Comic Images: Frazetta. Like its predecessor this second collection consisted of 90 2.5 x 3.5 inch trading cards that shipped in foil wrapped packs of ten; also included were six chase cards (three chromium and three spectrascope). Each card featured a painting or drawing by Frazetta on one side, and a short caption and pencil sketch on the reverse.

This batch of cards featured more of Frazetta’s movie poster work: Luana (card #71), and Attack (#74), which was used to promote Battlestar Galactica. There’s a reproduction of the cover to David Mason’s Kavin’s World (#73), as well as another interpretation of the character that helped cement Frazetta’s reputation as one of fantasy art’s premier artists: Conan (#62).

After Conan Frazetta’s most enduring creation is the Death Dealer, who appears on three cards in this batch (#75, #76 and #77). However my favourite from this selection is Pharaoh’s Tomb (#69). The painting has a terrific sense of impending danger, and I particular like the feeling of depth, as well as Frazetta’s use of lighting — great stuff.

So, here are cards #41-60 from Frazetta II: The Legend Continues, both front and back. Click here for cards #1-20, here for cards #21-40 and here for cards #41-60. I’ll post the last 10 cards — along with the chase cards — very soon.

Please note: some of the cards feature mild nudity.
