"In the world of comics, the legendary Frank Frazetta is probably most closely associated with Conan the Barbarian and the occasional Molly Hatchet album cover, but it's his incredible work in fantasy illustration that catapulted him to fame. Case in point, his illustrations for The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, originallly published as a limited (to 1,000) signed and numbered portfolio in 1975, which capture key moments of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic in Frazetta's absolutely beautiful style."

"One of the climactic moments of Lord of the Rings is when Eowyn reveals that she's a woman, and can therefore get around the fact that "no man" can defeat the Nazgûl. This is meant to be a surprise to the bad guys, which seems pretty unlikely in Frazetta's version of events:"

Pretty unlikely, indeed.
