A stunning new comic adaptation of the classic Elric of Melniboné novels by Michael Moorcock!
The ancient island of Melniboné has been ruled by Elric, the albino emperor, for millennia.

Now his envious cousin Yyrkoon, Prince of Melniboné, plots to overthrow him and claim the Ruby Throne for himself!
