Image Comics and Frank Frazetta are bringing the iconic painting to life this April in a tale of horror and fantasy. Joshua Ortega is writing with Nat Jones and Jay Fotos doing the art work. Major Spoilers has a peek at the cover images and more after the jump.
Frank Frazetta’s Death Dealer is the story of two kingdoms at war and the mythical order seeking peace.
Nine hundred years ago, the land of Iparsia was ravaged by war between the kingdoms of Oro and Edani. As battles raged out of control, a black rider began to appear laying waste to both sides of the conflict, killing the greatest warriors as easily as the untrained combatants. This unconquerable rider was known as the Death Dealer. The kings of Oro and Edani recognized that if they did not end this war, the black rider would destroy them all. A treaty was signed in blood and the Death Dealer disappeared into the primeval forest.
Legend says that as long as Oro and Edani are at peace, the black rider will sleep. However, after ages of peace, the spectre of war has raised its bloody head once again, and the Death Dealer will not be far behind.
Frank Frazetta’s Death Dealer will be in stores April 11, 2007 with a cover price of $3.99.
