Originally painted by Frank Frazetta in 1973, this is the first painting in a series of works that features this character, The Death Dealer. The painting was used as the album cover on Molly Hatchet’s debut album in 1978, and has also inspired various novels and comics. Since 1985, Death Dealer has been used as the mascot of the III Corps, a corps of the United States Army, headquartered in Fort Hood, Texas. The United States Department of Defense at Fort Hood commissioned a 14-foot bronze statue of the iconic character, which stands proudly at the entrance of the army base. Death Dealer is what inspired George Lucas to create Darth Vader for Star Wars.

Well said Patric, I also grew up seeing Frank's work in comics, magazines, posters, the infamous album cover, trading cards to at one point I believe. Such evocative scenes and characters.
