    An Elric-like character met Thrud the Barbarian (the Conan spoof by Carl Critchlow - very funny) in the White Dwarf mag in the 80's.

    Can't recall what happened, I have it at home somewhere.....

        Well, this guy at eBay has The Chronicles of Corum issues 1-12 listed for $9.99 (Buy It Now for $20), but there is only a day left on the auction, so you'd have to hurry:

        $7 for shipping, though, eesh. But if you really want them and can't find them anywhere else, it's an option.

        And no, it's not my auction or an auction by anyone I know. I'm just always searching for Moorcock stuff on eBay and found this.

          Can you dig for it? Right now I'm working on the Comics Gallery and it'd be great to include this Thrud story in the Parodies sub-album:

            hi there

            don't know if the link below will work, but it's definintely in the Thrud The Barbarian Graffik Novel Anthology (copies appear on ebay quite regularly). Very funny and well worth getting

              Conan -vs- Gaynor

              Savage Sword 189 pages 33 & 34
              are now up.

              I expected a little more from Prince Gaynor.....
              he was probably just bored with the Hyborian plane.

                Krzysiek, it might have taken three years(!), but I've created that Thrud album in the Parodies sub-album with covers and strips featuring the Elric parody (Eric of Bonémaloné and his magical sword Stoatbringer) for you.

                _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
                _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
                _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

                  Thrud! Awesome! I used to collect White Dwarf religiously until it became GW-only.

                  David Langford did a very cool Eternal Champion parody in White Dwarf many years ago. I can't remember what issue it was in (I have it downstairs somewhere) and it probably wouldn't be legal to post it, even if I could remember which issue it was in. But fun parody all the same...

                  Edit: A bit of Google-fu reveals it was in White Dwarf #59, the Nov 1984 issue and was called "The Mad Gods' Omelette." Beware the Bane of the Black Leg!!

                  The name that can be named is not the true name.

He'd always wanted to see Elric in US comics (he'd already appeared in Druillet's story first published in about 1965 in Moi Aussi, Paris) and in Jim Cawthorn's Stormbringer, done for Savoy Books. So this was a way to introduce him to comic readers, Roy thought.
                    Mike, this was actually how I discovered your books, so for me at least it worked rather well. After reading the comics I stumbled across the Queen of the Swords and The Singing Citadel and never looked back.
