|(Pencil Artist – Fastner & Larson Little Black Book; Haunted House of Lingerie; Alien @ Large; Tricks & Treats)|
|Rich Larson is the redoubtable pencil artist in the Minneapolis-based comics and fantasy art team, Fastner & Larson. His influences include Steve Ditko, Jack Kirby and Wally Wood. He's done stories and covers for Charlton ghost comics, the US version of the 2000AD line, and 666's Demon Baby. With airbrush artist Steve Fastner, he's done album cover art for Overkill, Intruder and Powermad.
Seriously whacked out by 50's SF and horror movies, 60's Marvel comics and MAD magazine, Fastner & Larson have produced slightly off-kilter imagery for art portfolios, comics, t-shirts, record albums and paperbacks since 1976. Nineteen collections of their work have been published, including Haunted House of Lingerie, Kiss of Death, Tricks & Treats, and Zombiesexual. They're probably best known for their 1980's Marvel Superhero portfolios of the Hulk, X-Men, and Spiderman. Their website is www.fastnerandlarson.com.
