Comic Art News: Frank Thorne retrospective March 7th

llustration House is pleased to present “Through the Eyes of a Wizard” — Frank Thorne's first-ever exhibition and sale, March 9 - March 30, 2015, with 75 original works, from Red Sonja to his contemporary paintings, curated by Zaddick Longenbach.

Frank Thorne started his comic career in 1948 at the age of 18, paying his dues on romance stories and titles from Tom Corbet to Twilight Zone until Robert E. Howard's heroine Red Sonja came under his pen in ’75, and he never looked back. Frank came into his own with the sexy, feisty barbarian, making Sonja one of Marvel’s top selling titles, as well as getting one of the first conventions devoted to a single character: “Sonja Con” in 1976. Frank left Sonja at its peak in ‘78 to create his own erotic epic “Ghita,” one of the first graphic novels in the history of comics. This led to other original characters, including “Danger Rangerette” for National Lampoon, “Lann,” for Heavy Metal, “Ribit!”, and “Moonshine McJugs” for Playboy where his work appeared for 20 years. At the age of 84, Frank is still in his studio working on large-scale paintings. 

Opening Saturday, March 7, 4:00-7:00.

All works will be viewable on-line prior to the opening (, 212-966-9444 or email

Show hours: Monday - Friday 10:30-5:30, weekends by appointment.
