Luis Bermejo's Lord Of The Rings
Here's something I didn't even know existed until recently, but as soon as I found out about, made it a mission to find scans of. This is Luis Bermejo, who was part of the Spanish invasion that took over Warren in the Bronze Age, and comes from about 1979.
It's heavily based on Ralph Bakshi's animated Rings movie in terms of character design, so I assume it was an official tie-in alongside the fotonovel you could also get at the time. Except you couldn't get this.
It ran for three books, and was originally printed in German, then distributed to Italy, Spain and The Netherlands.
It's never been released in England or America though, so may be as new to everybody else as it is to me, ( except Philbo of course who has everything ) and I don't really know much more about it than that. It is beautiful tho'. Here's the first book.
