    AFAIK there's only one cover to add - "I ujrzeli czlowieka" ("Behold the Man").

      Fantastic!
      The cat spread its wings and flew high into the air, hovering to keep pace with them as they moved cautiously toward the city. Then, as they climbed over the rubble of what had once been a gateway and began to make their way through piles of weed-grown masonry, the cat flew to the squat building with the yellow dome upon its roof. It flew twice around the dome and then came back to settle on Jhary's shoulder. - The King of the Swords

        Excellent stuff, Krzysiek! The Non-English editions album has been my baby up 'til now and I would like to thank you for this wonderful addition.

        It bears out my assertion that Mike has been excellently served by his cover artists everywhere his work has appeared.

        Thanks again.
        You see, it's... it's no good, Montag. We've all got to be alike. The only way to be happy is for everyone to be made equal.

          Now that is just too cool!

            Great work, Krzys.

            Some nice new pics and some familiar images in new contexts.

            I wonder if Frazetta got any royalties? :)

                I've upload the cover of Interzone #137, which contains the JC story 'Cheering for the Rockets' to the Image Gallery:

                [broken link]

                as well as some cover scans of the 1975 edition of Elric of Melnibone from Arrow.

                [broken link]

                Incidentally, does anyone know who the cover artist for this edition was?

                [broken link]

                Or why Elric's depicted wearing Full Plate Mail armour (AC 0)?

                      Nice work on that composite scan! I must try some of those.

                      Don't know the artist. Quite a nice job. Even if Elric is less than albinoid. The background seems more suited to illustrate Strombringer, though.

                      • Thanks for that US Cure For Cancer cover Guy. I quite like it, although some don't. And that's a great portrait of Mike on the back. Must try and pick one up.

                        I've always liked the 1975 Arrow Elric Of Melnibone too, although I think it makes him look too old.

You do so MUCH... if half of what goes into your zines is to be believed, you've read more at the age of 17 than I have at the age of 32 - LOTS more'

                        • Looking through Diamond's Previews magazine for December 2005 today I noticed this advert for an upcoming issue Paul Grist's Jack Staff comic:

                          • Crikey, chaps!

                            Paul Grist, as enny fule kno, is somewhat brilliant, so this should be fun!

                            • Sadly I can't really afford to support a comic book habit at the moment, but the last title I bought was Grist's Kane. His Sin City parody/homage issue was genius, so this could be very good indeed. Now, if only our comic shop hadn't closed down... :(

                              • I've, er, 'harvested' a whole load of foreign Moorcock books from eBay and placed them in Limbo (although I think someone's sorting them as I type ;)). Mostly German titles but a smattering of Italian and French covers as well.

                                I've also 'harvested' some new copies of the Whelan Daw covers - the composition isn't ideal but the level of detail is better than some of the Daw covers we've already got in the IG.
