ETA: I just wanted to expand on this version of the comic versus the ones by P. Craig Russel. Titan is going to re-release the comics by Russel, which until now were probably considered "the definitive edition", so it's worth comparing. The Russel comics are much more true to the original stories and allow much more space for the story to lay out. What this comic does in 64 pages, the Russel one does in 176. However, as a big fan of Moorcock I never quite felt Russel struck the "tone" right with the artwork, which is why I love this new comic by Blondel/Poli more.Read more ›
Other readers, beware! Do not get this on your kindle. You will regret it. If you do want this graphic novel just order it and have it shipped to you. Very disappointed!
