I can't choose one over the other either.

Oh. I guess I didn't pick the most compelling works by these fellows after all.

After I let my overheated emotions cool down, and gave this some thought, Hepcat asked which "monster" art you liked best, not which *artist* you liked best. When I considered it in that light, Basil Gogos is the obvious choice. While Bama and Frazetta each did some killer monsters, Basil is King of monster art and will forever be. It was his FM covers that have thrilled and inspired me for forty plus years. All hail King Basil!!!

I like Illoman's logic. I wanted to vote for all three, but that's like saying the Godfather Trilogy is your favorite film.


Basil Rocks!

Man... that's a tough one. I'm stuck between Bama and Gogos, personally.

Basil Gogos is my favorite, although Frazetta is awesome.

Frank Frazetta was also well adept at doing more light hearted material:

My rankings are based purely on sentiment:

Tie for first between Gogos's Famous Monsters covers and Bama's Aurora kits -- for those of us who were monster kids in the late 50s/early 60's, who wasn't completely absorbed by their artwork???? Sort of like being invaded by mind snatchers. For me Frazetta, although great, is a distant third because he really didn't focus on movie monsters. I actually liked Ron Cobb's FM covers better than Frazetta stuff, and of course his production design work for "Alien" is legendary.

I voted for Frazetta, but all of these men are top- of- the- line in their own right, so it's a win- win- win situation.
