Classic Covers: Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser

From the magazine covers of Fantastic, to endlessly reprinted mass market paperback collections, and comics and role playing game supplements by the score, Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser have long proven an irresistible subject for artists and illustrators. The giant, tawny-haired barbarian and his nimble-limbed roguish companion make for a striking contrast not only narratively, but visually as well.

Of course, there are more than a few terrific covers not displayed in the above collection, such as these two new classics from Doug Kovacs for Dungeons Crawl Classics: Lankhmar and the issue 6 of Tales From the Magician’s Skull. The legacy of the Twain lives on in fantastic fantasy art.
