John Blanche Fighting Fantasy Boxset 1983



A slipcase of the first four Fighting Fantasy books with illustration by John Blanche. As mentalist as Blanche's work ever was back then. Is that a bit of a Slann/Lustria/Chariots of the Frogs thing going on on the back cover?

  4. If you like Blanche (and this FF boxset is brilliant BTW, though I can never seem to afford it on eBay), check out the FF two-player Clash of the Princes set:

    And a hidden gem: The Glade of Dreams 2-player series:

    All with colour cover and internal B&W art by the Blanchitsu man!

    cheers
