Karl Edward Wagner's character, Kane, is shown in all his axe-wielding glory for the cover of the novel, The Gods in Darkness, Nightshade Books, 2002. This piece was also used on the LP album cover for the Rock band Fathom on their album, Celtic Rocks, where the axe Kane is wielding was replaced with a banjo. The band also based many merchandised items on this image, such as shirts, bags, and even drink coasters.
The piece has been framed to an overall size of 36" x 48". Unless otherwise noted, this lot is in good condition with only normal wear commensurate with age.
