Elric: The Sleeping Sorceress

Behold the mighty awesomeness that is John Picacio's cover art for the third volume in Del Rey reissue of Michael Moorcock's Elric.

As John points out on his blog, volume one in the series, Elric of Melniboné, with cover and interior illustrations by Picacio, is available now; volume two, To Rescue Tanelorn, with cover and interiors by Michael Kaluta, will be out in late July; and this third volume, The Sleeping Sorceress, with cover by Picacio and interiors by Steve Ellis, will be out in early December.

John really nailed Elric's face. That's exactly what Elric should -- and does -- really look like.

And John's Stormbringer is the best realization of the sword to date as well, to my way of thinking.
