Zanbar Maul Darth Bone

This is Zanbar Bone the BBEG of the fifth FF book, City of Thieves. Designed and illustrated by Brit(*) Old Skool favourite Iain McCaig, 1983.


This is Darth Maul, Sith Lord from that Phantom Menace shit. Designed by Brit(*) Old Skool favourite Iain McCaig (yes, the same one), mid-1990s.


Influence of FF went a long way didn't it?

(*) Californian by birth, Canadian by upbringing, Glaswegian by residence. But you know what I mean.

  1. Ian McCaig: a truly canny fellow when it comes to avoiding unnecessary expenditure of effort.

    "You want a new Star Wars villain?" *colour, shade* "Aye, there ye go. I'm away to the pub."

  2. Ian Craig, will have to look that one up.

  3. Worth noting that the very first Darth Maul illustration in that style didn't have horns. It had feathers held onto his heads with wire, the horns were a later addition.
