The Fall of Camelot

Another great example of Jack mining the rich wealth of ancient mythological and legendary lore to put his own unique spin on old characters. Merlin from the splash page of The Demon # 1 (1972). Inks by Mike Royer.
Here is page 2 and page 3 of the same book. I split the double-splash in half so you can take a close look at the artwork. Notice each piece still works as a stand-alone image. This is also a great example of how Jack was able to portray fierce violence in his books while still adhering to the strict comics code.

Left-click on each image twice and it will enlarge to fill your whole screen so you can see the details in Jack's work.
