    Description

    Frank Brunner Star*Reach Greatest Hits (#nn) Elric Cover Painting Original Art (Star*Reach, 1979). Michael Moorcock's Elric of Melniboné, with his ebony blade Stormbringer, was the cover feature for this trade paperback collection of some of the finest stories published by one of the best alternate comics publishers. Frank Brunner's art was the perfect fit for the tortured bearer of the cursed blade, and Brunner's look help define the character in the minds of many readers. This piece was so popular that just two years later it was used as the cover for the 1981 Chaosium Stormbringer role-playing game boxed set that allowed players to fantasy role play in the world created by Moorcock in 1961. This stunning and fierce oil on canvas board piece measures 18" x 24" and is signed and dated in the lower left corner. Brunner also added his mark to the hilt of the black blade. In Excellent condition.
