Closeout Price! Highly Recommended. Edited by Arnie Fenner, Cathy Fenner and Manuel Auad. Countless artists have painted Robert E. Howard's characters through the years, but few more brilliantly than legendary Spanish painter Sanjulián. An action-filled group of rare and previously unpublished paintings. Best known in the United States for his cover paintings for Vampirella, Sanjulián has been rightly called an artist's artist for his masterful compositions and vibrant use of color. Bonus: a major 8-page essay about Howard, his career and legacy by Fenner, co-editor of Spectrum.

Countless artists have painted Robert E. Howard's characters through the years, but few more brilliantly than legendary Spanish painter Sanjulián. An action-filled group of rare and previously unpublished paintings. Best known in the United States for his cover paintings for Vampirella, Sanjulián has been rightly called an artist's artist for his masterful compositions and vibrant use of color. Bonus: a major 8-page essay about Howard, his career and legacy by Fenner, co-editor of Spectrum.

Each picture is accompanied by quotes from REH's stories, many based on the original text from Weird Tales. Moderate nudity. Black and white pencilled versions of most of the paintings are also included. Stories illustrated include "Queen of the Black Coast," "Rogues in the House," and "Tower of the Elephant."

Honored by the Society of Illustrators, Sanjulian has created numerous book jackets for a diverse range of publishers.
