Retro Battlestar Gallatica TV Guide Ads by Frank Franzetta

Frank Frazetta is one of my all time favorite artists. His paintings illustrated many a movie poster and book cover throughout the 60's, 70's & 80's. Even though I am a great admire of his work, I have never seen the black & white advertisements he did for TV Guide back in 1978 featuring the Battlestar Gallatica cast. Wow... just wow. I am loving this right now. You gotta get over to The Retroist and check out all the cool shit they are posting. These guys take it back... way back. Click after the jump for both ad's in full color...
