OK, I realize I may be the only one on this blog who even knows who Kent Burles is, but screw it. I’ve been going down memory lane on my personal blog for the Indie Cover Spotlight, and since I’ve talked a lot about the fantasy book The Adventurers, I figured it’s time to post a page from it.

This is from Adventurers #0, published by Adventure Publications, 1986.

There was a certain…refined grotesqueness (for lack of a better phrase) quality to Burles’ artwork on this book that always appealed to me. It worked especially well for depicting the monsters in the fantasy realm of the book.

Here’s a look at some of his non-genre art.

    Two, if you count non-regulars. Didn’t recognize the name, but I do recognize the book.

  • Matt Kish says:

    I don’t recognize the name but I LOVE that spread! Was this ever collected? Was it ongoing? This grotesqueness…so wonderful!

  • Dara says:

    Matt: yes, the series was collected in 3 TPBs, from Malibu. But good luck finding them.

    I believe this is the first collection. Note that the cover has absolutely nothing to do with the series. I think they just used some generic piece of fantasy art that was laying around.
