Tom Sutton displays his formidable artistic talent for the spooky in this detailed sword and sorcery double-page splash. Nicola Cuti's sly yarn pays an eerie homage to Lewis Caroll's poem,"Jabberwocky": "...'Beware the Jabberwock, my son! The jaws that bite, the claws that catch! Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun The frumious Bandersnatch!' He took his vorpal sword in hand: Long time the manxome foe he sought -- So rested he by the Tumtum tree, And stood awhile in thought..." The image area measures 22" x 15", and is in Excellent condition. You'll have to search far and wide to find a more spectacular Sutton monster-piece than this one, so bid accordingly!
