Earl Norem’s ‘Dragonslayer’ Artwork For The Marvel Comics Adapation Was Awesome! (1983)

Dragonslayer - Earl Norem

We’ve mentioned our appreciation for Earl Norem’s artwork on the site once or twice before. I didn’t realize however I had seen his work long before the awesome He-Man illustrations he would provide for the official magazine until I came across his cover artwork for the Dragonslayer comic magazine adaptation by Marvel Comics.

A young Vic Sage happened to grab this very magazine the afternoon before he saw the film at his local Drive-In and I am happy to say that I am still just as captivated by Norem’s artwork depicting the peril of Princess Elspeth, the majesty of Vermithrax, and the mystery of Ulrich of Craggenmoor as when I first picked it up!
