Cover art for Jules Verne’s “Fitzroy” edition translations, printed by Ace Books in the 1960s-70s.
Entertaining romp where feisty Norse merchant-prince Ragnarr takes on the empire of Crete, because a Cretan prince stole his girlfriend. Lots of sword-battles and sea-fights.
Age of Aces has created one of the best-looking pulp reprints. Ever. And in it, The Spider, master of men, takes on a criminal empire that’s taken over New York in a 1938 allegory for European fascism.
