"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 Melnibonï¿½ novel into their great comic book." - Newsarama
