Collecting the third volume of the classic 1980's comic adaptation of the Elric of Melniboné novels by Michael Moorcock! Adapted from Moorcock's eponymous first story featuring Elric of Melnibone and originally published by Marvel Comics, this world-spanning fantasy epic chronicles Elric's return to the Dreaming City of Imrryr, and his battle to reclaim his throne and lost love Cymoril.
"Captures Moorcock's vision like nothing before!" Ron Marz (Silver Surfer, Green Lantern) "A sweeping adventure, exquisitely adapted by some of comics' top talent" - FA Comics "This spectacular, resplendently flamboyant adaptation is a deliciously elegant, savagely beautiful masterpiece of the genre effortlessly blending blistering action and gleaming adventure with the deep, darkly melancholic tone of the cynical, nihilistic, Cold-War mentality and era that spawned the original stories." - Comics Review "Fantasy of the highest order, with dragons, pirates and magic swords coming together into an incredibly epic and robust world" - Adventures In Poor Taste "A Classic Repackaging of a Classic Tale! 5 out of 5!" - Comic Spectrum "Unforgettable action and intrigue...a must-read for any fans of science fiction, sorcery or sword-and-sorcery epics!" - Comics Bulletin "Richly deserves to be back in print...can't wait to return to the dreaming city!" - SFX "A terrific book." - Jeff Vaughn, Scoop "Magic swords, epic quests, and gods dallying in the lives of poor confused mortals... such grand fun!" - Fanboy Comics "An ideal introduction to the character" - Flickering Myth "For any fan of Michael Moorcock's work, this is pretty much a must have." - Nerdly "Part horror, part adventure, and all imagination - it's a terrific work and highly recommended!" - Comic of the Day "Working together, these three creators made an adaptation that remains faithful to the original novel but never feels like a mere adaptation or retelling of the source material. They made Michael Moorcock's Elric of Melniboné novel into their great comic book." - Newsarama
