Now under the despotic rule of the immortal King-Emperor Huon, the empire is expanding its diabolical reach across what was once Europe. Against the backdrop of political intrigue, arcane magic, flying machines and high adventure, one man, Dorian Hawkmoon, the Duke of Koln, leads a rebellion to stop Huon’s evil once and for all. As a prelude to the 2019 publication of The Sword and the Runestaff, the legendary unpublished second volume of The Chronicles of Hawkmoon, Titan are proud to present this very special edition, which collects together the first two chapters: ‘The Jewel in the Skull’ and ‘The Crystal and the Amulet’ for the first time ever. Adpated and drawn by the critically acclaimed writer James Cawthorn. Taken as a whole, these chronicles mark the first time that the work of science fiction and fantasy author Michael Moorcock had ever been adapted, and heralded the birth of the modern graphic novel genre. The first two stories – ‘The Jewel in the Skull’ (1979) and ‘The Crystal the Amulet’ (1986) – set the gold standard benchmark for science fantasy, and the publication of next year’s final chapter – ‘The Sword and the Runestaff’ – will finally see the culmination of Cawthorn and Moorcock’s grand vision and mark the conclusion of a saga 40-years in the telling. “Unforgettable action and intrigue… a must-read for any fans of science fiction, sorcery or sword-and-sorcery epics.” – Comics Bulletin “A classic repackaging of a classic tale! 5 out of 5.” – Comics Spectrum
