  1. Lovely. Just recently (o.k. some time last year) I finally got a hold of those two "Masterworks Series" comics published by DC in the early '80s that collect all of Frazetta's Shining Knight stories. Haven't actually sat down to read them; however, I flipped through them and the art is just gorgeous.
