PROVO, Utah – Gary Coleman, the child star of the smash 1970s TV sitcom "Diff'rent Strokes" whose later career was marred by medical and legal problems, has died after suffering an intercranial hemorrhage. He was 42.
Utah Valley Regional Medical Center spokeswoman Janet Frank says life support was terminated and Coleman died at 12:05 p.m. MDT.
Coleman, with his sparkling eyes and perfect comic timing, became a star after "Diff'rent Strokes" debuted in 1978. He played the younger brother in a pair of African-American siblings adopted by a wealthy white man.
His popularity faded when the show ended after six seasons on NBC and two on ABC.
He suffered continuing ill health from the kidney disease that stunted his growth and had a host of legal problems in recent years.

R.I.P. Frank Frazetta: Iconic Artist And Visionary

R.I.P. Frank Frazetta: Iconic Artist And Visionary

As I reported earlier today on Twitter, veteran artist Frank Frazetta has died at age 82.

The creator responsible for some of the most iconic images from the worlds of swords-and-sorcery and science-fiction, Frazetta died due to a stroke suffered earlier today.

Perhaps best known for his paintings of Conan the Barbarian that adorned the covers of Robert E. Howard's paperback adventures, the artist contributed both covers and interior art for comics and numerous novels — including the "Creepy" comics and Edgar Rice Burroughs' "John Carter of Mars" series. His images of musclebound men, terrifying creatures, and scantily clad women in need of rescue became the inspiration for countless artists and literary works.

My first introduction to Frazetta's work came via the aforementioned "John Carter" novels, which the artist openly admitted had very little to do with the paintings and interior illustrations he created for the stories.

"I didn't read any of it... I drew him my way," Frazetta was reported to have said when asked about the art associated with the books. "It was really rugged. And it caught on. I didn't care about what people thought. People who bought the books never complained about it. They probably didn't read them."

More recently, Image Comics released a line of comics based on popular Frazetta paintings, including the iconic "Death Dealer" and "Dark Kingdom" paintings, among others. His work was also used as the art for several notable albums, including Molly Hatchet's first two releases and Nazareth's 1977 album "Expect No Mercy."

His "Conan the Conqueror" painting, which was featured on the cover of Howard's paperback novel, sold for more than $1 million in November 2009.
