The Fantasy Art of Oliver Frey - Out Now on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

For any gamers who played through the classic age of the ZX Spectrum and the Amstrad, Oliver Frey's work will be immediately recognisable, even if they aren't aware of the man that created it. He produced numerous pieces of art for each of the platform specific gaming mags of the time, magazines like ZZAP!64 and CRASH!

Those unfamiliar with his work would be wise to Google some of the covers of these magazines as there are some absolutely phenomenal pieces of art there. His sci-fi and zombie pieces are absolutely superb. This high quality work carried on through the 8-bit and 16-bit eras, too, creating illustrations for some truly iconic games from series like Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, Streets of Rage and many others.

Fans who want to relive these fantastic art pieces can now do so without digging out or tracking down the old magazines, thanks to the new book The Fantasy Art of Oliver Frey. This huge and stunning hardback "Extended Edition" book is available now at FunstockRetro.co.uk for just £19.99.

It's not just the high-quality prints of his work contained within, either, there's also a full biography that looks into his past working on British comics like Dan Dare, his work on Superman: The Movie, and so much more. Fans of the classic gaming art would be wise to pick this one up.
