Indexer Notes

Frank Frazetta republished this painting, with slight revisions, as a poster titled “Egyptian Queen.” The face of the woman is different in the poster. In an interview in The Comics Journal #174 (February 1995), reprinted on the magazine's website, Frazetta said, "I’ll never forget, the 'Egyptian Queen.' I got that whole painting done, in about a day and a half, and I looked at it. It was done as far as I was concerned. Then I looked at her face, and I didn’t like it [...] so I finally just settled for any face, and brought it in, and they printed it that way, and then I forgot about it. So, a couple of months later I get it back; now I was fresh again. And I just looked at it and 'Pow!' I whacked in the face you see in all the prints."
