Synopsis:
From back-cover: "'For ten thousand years the Dreaming City ruled the world, and only in the past five hundred years has the sceptre of real power passed to the human nations the Melnibonéans call, somewhat scornfully, the Younger Kingdoms. And this night begins the tragedy which will finally call down doom, death, and destruction upon the Dragon Isle...' The graphic adaptation of the first book in the saga of Michael Moorcock's famous sword-and-sorcery hero -- Elric of Melniboné -- recounting the origin of the last prince to sit upon the Ruby Throne in the Dreaming City of Imrryr and the beginnings of his unholy alliance with the mystic blade, Stormbringer!"
