Bio:
Frank Thorne started his comic book career in 1948, when Standard Comics gave him several romance stories to pencil. After graduation, he drew the 'Perry Mason' newspaper strip for King Features, which was followed by more comic book work for Dell. He turned out a multitude of stories for 'Flash Gordon', 'Jungle Jim', The Green Hornet', and many more.

Thorne's breakthrough came in 1975, when he was asked to draw 'Red Sonja' for Marvel. He left 'Sonja' in 1978 to create his own woman warrior 'Ghita of Alizzar'. Since then there has been no stopping to Thorne's vein of erotic fantasy, creating 'Lann' for Heavy Metal and 'Moonshine McJuggs' for Playboy during the 1980s and 'The Iron Devil' and 'The Devil's Angel' during the 1990s.

Date of Birth: June 6th, 1930
