Madame Xanadu #1 - Marshall Rogers art

Marshall Rogers

Madame Xanadu v1 #1, 1981 - Madame Xanadu makes an appearance in this one-shot bronze age issue. It contains Marshall Rogers' longest story to date, done at the height of his popularity. Well paced and sequenced, every panel is beautifully drawn and a small masterwork in themselves. The captivating panel sequences on page three and the dramatic full page of two conjured demons on page 19 (see interior page below) are two of the story's many highlights. Mike Kaluta provides the the intricately designed cover, which looks even better repeated on the back cover sans text. His fold-out poster is a pleasant bonus and is lovingly illustrated as well. UK artist Brian Bolland, whose Camelot 3000 series would soon make its debut, also contributes a short science fiction story. This is number 1 of 1 Madame Xanadu issues with Rogers art and/or covers.
