TO CAMELOT" POSTER
By Gary Gianni
1985, Chicago Tribune reporter, Cliff Terry, wrote a feature story on Avalon
to Camelot which was illustrated by an image of Arthur and Merlin crossing
Lake Michigan , with the Chicago skyline in the background and Excalibur rising
from the lake. The artist was Gary Gianni, who generously adapted the image (sans
the skyline) for us as a poster.

Flash forward almost 20 years to March 21, 2004, when Gianni began illustrating
the long-revered comic strip, Prince Valiant. A comic in which the young
prince first comes to Camelot as the squire of Sir Gawain, before becoming a Knight
of the Round Table, himself.
In between time, Gary drew –
and sometimes wrote – several popular comics and graphic novels, collaborated
with such major writers as Harlan Ellison, teamed up with Michael Kaluta to work
on The Shadow, and illustrated Robert E. Howard’s Tales of Solomon Kane
and Bran Mak Morn: The Last King. As well as Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues
Under the Sea. Nice that he’s come full circle back to the stories that got
so many of us hooked on the Knights of the Round Table as kids, only to enjoy
it as a lifelong passion.
Gary Gianni’s 18 x 24 “Avalon
to Camelot” poster is printed with indigo-colored ink on ivory, textured stock
