    D'Averc appears on the cover of the comic book adaptation of Sword of the Dawn, no.3. I've added a bigger scan of part of the cover to the album here:

    The interior artwork of these comics is frankly pretty awful, but I have montaged some pictures of D'Averc from the comics here:

    You can click on the thumbnail to see a larger image, then click on that one for the full-size image, as you may already know.

    In the earlier pics he is seen wearing hs Dark Empire armour and boar mask.

      That comic version of D'Averc is interesting 'cos I've always imagined him as looking more 'French', which basically translates has having a mustache. The closest I can come to finding a picture of what I mean is this one of the character Gus from the Marvel UK 5th Doctor comic strips from the 1980s.

      Funny how we make our own mental images of those we read of in books, isn't it?
      _"For an eternity Allard was alone in an icy limbo where all the colours were bright and sharp and comfortless.
      _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."

        Pardon me for effusing, Guy, but... What a wonderful gesture!
        I think you have embodied the spirit of this site in that one action. Generous, welcoming, accepting...

        Thanks from me - and I don't have a son called Huillam. (Though, now I come to think of it, one of the buggers should have been called Jeremiah!)

        Seriously - :notworthy:

          Demos, doesn't that illustration remind you of the actor David Lodge?



          He appeared, among other things, in Spike Milligan's Q- series where he was wont to mention 'I was in Cockleshell Heroes, y'know.'

          (Best picture I could find of him, if anyone can find a better one then please do. As soon as I saw that jawline I recognised him!)

            Demos, I agree; I'd seen D'Averc as quite the Eroll Flynn type! With just a touch of Leslie Phillips! (Or was that the other way round?). I don't know where First comics got the idea he had white hair. Is that canonical?

            They portrayed red-haired/furred Oladahn as white-haired too. Must have been thinking of that other fella, Eric or Ulric or whatever his name is...

            Thanks for the kind words, Guv'nor. Scanning pics can be fun (up to a point). And I had to get my Bible Story stuff done. (See the Bible Story thread. Very rarely seen images, doncha know.) So D'Averc was just warming up the scanner.

              I've seen the Bible Story scans, Guy, more great stuff.
              I'm sure I would never have seen or even been aware of this stuff if it wasn't for this site. What a fantastic archive is displayed in the Image Gallery, but what a fantastic career it illustrates. I'm sure there are very few which can compare, either way.

                Berry and PWV and all who have helped to set up this site, and all those who have contributed, have created something quite brilliant!

                  Guillaume of course, is the French version of William. Huillam the Conqueror ? :)
                  Didn't know you'd put up some Bible Story scans, Guy. I must check 'em out. As most people know, I don't have any of this stuff myself, so it's fun to see stuff I did all those years ago. Thanks.

                    Ely Cathedral. Sounds good. Don't think I've ever been there... :)
                    I used to write all that stuff firmly convinced I was protected by anonymity! Seems positively treacherous to put my name on the piece... :)

                          You're welcome, Huillam. There are also, of course, the Cawthorn comics, I don't think we've mentioned. Cawthorn's version was much closer to my conception of D'Averc than any of the others.

                            Well put, Guv. Indeed, 'tis a kind and noteworthy thing Guy has done. Way to go, Guy, and thanks for all your work on the Image Gallery. :up:

                              Aha! I'd forgotten about the Cawthorn books as they are very big and don't fit on the shelves with the other books and comics.

                              I shall have to find them now Mr M has reminded me about them!
