Swiss-born comic artist Oliver Frey contributed one comic strip story to the Brown & Watson Planet of the Apes annual published in 1976 - Ship Of Fools.[1]

Frey continued to excel in the worlds of fantasy and carved out a niche in book illustrations, magazine covers and comics (including The Trigan Empire, War/Battle Picture Library and one of his main inspirations, Dan Dare). He has made brief contributions to the movies (including some work on Superman) but probably achieved most prominence as a magazine cover artist - a generation of twenty-somethings will be familiar with his work on the covers of 8-bit computer magazines such as Crash and Zzap two decades ago.[2]
