The artist best known for Marvel’s Red Sonja has died at the age of 90…
Frank Thorne, the cult-favorite artist most popular in the ’70s, died Sunday at the age of 90, the same day as his wife, Marilyn.
While Thorne was known for many features, none came close to his mainstream success on Marvel’s Red Sonja, with writers Roy Thomas and Clair Noto, in the Bronze Age. (He also made a name for himself playing the Wizard at comics shows where cosplayer/artist Wendy Pini would perform with him as the She-Devil With a Sword.)
