A very sharp copy of a scarce 1979 graphic novel. Signed and dated 12-13-19 by the writer Jan Strnad at our bookshop.
Originally serialized in Heavy Metal, Strnad and Corben's retelling of the Arabian Nights was only collected in this version, with an introduction by Harlan Ellison.
Heavy Metal Presents: New Tales of the Arabian Nights, aka "The last Voyage of Sindbad" is a collation that first appeared in Heavy Metal Magazine issues #15-28 (1978-1979).
The story begins with a somewhat faithful revisit of the original "Arabian Nights" storyline, and then adds to that via Sharazad, a queen, telling a story about Sindbad's last voyage to her sister, Dunyazad.
Well-known author Harlan Ellison writes the Introduction and observes that what sets this series apart from similar Heavy Metal productions is the fact that the artwork by Corben, enhances and compliments, rather than overwhelms the storyline of Strnad.
