A really beautiful book with artwork by Roy G. Krenkel. Krenkel was a huge Howard fan. Contains a two-part article about REH & RGK. The first by Richard Garryson, titled ‘Robert E. Howard’s Champion’ and the second by Donald M. Grant called ‘Thunder Road’.
The first major collection of the fantasy artist’s work in 20 years, this book is filled with classic and previously unseen portrayals of futuristic cities, prehistoric beasts, jungle men, bodacious beauties, and more. Providing a rich overview of Krenkel’s work, this book is profusely illustrated with 250 illustrations and photos-from his defining artwork on Tarzan, Conan, and Wizard of Oz, to his collaborations with Frank Frazetta.
