DESCRIPTION
42 pages of original production color separations; 4 seps per page (168 total); c. 1979; 7.75" x 11" ea.
From the only official LOTR comic adaptation ever!

J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings is one of the most celebrated and beloved fantasy stories ever created, having been adapted into multiple feature films both live action and animated. Comic books however, have been the one place where it's presence has been sorely lacking. The only comic adaptation of the story was created by Spanish artist Luis Bermejo (who contributed to Warren magazines Creepy, Eerie, and Vampirella) in around 1979 in Europe and was never given a release in English.

What we have here are 42 pages of color separation transparencies, 4 for each page (one for each different color in the printing process), for a total of 168 pieces, many of which have alterations that were added by hand. This would have been for the entirety of book one of the adaptation.

This collection comes form the estate of Bernard Lieberman, former CFO of Fantasy Records, who had the world wide exclusive rights to Lord of the Rings and had authorization to publish the comic book overseas but not in the USA.
