Summary

Summary

Celebrate the darkness! A brand-new collection of art from the master of fantasy and horror continues the theme of the extremely successful Darkwerks. Brom's characteristic and potent brand of sinister, disturbing imagery comes to life through a selection of the very best paintings and concept work of recent years. In addition to covers from best-selling novels by Terry Brooks, Anne McCaffrey, and Michael Moorcock, here are Brom's illustrations for comic books (Batman); movies (Galaxy Quest and Sleepy Hollow); computer games (Doom II), and collectible cards (ICE's Lord of the Rings), where he has become the leading name. With over 120 haunting images, this collection will find an eager audience waiting to plunge into its irresistible, shadowy depths.


Author Notes

Brom began working as a commercial artist at the age of 20 and soon crossed into the field of dark fantasy. He was nominated for a Chesley Award for Best Game-Related Illustration in 2000 and another collection of his illustrations, Darkwerks: Art of Brom, has proven extremely popular.
