The strips included are King Solomon's Mines, Allan Quatermain and Montezuma's Daughter. The cover is by John Millar Watt from an illustration originally published in Look & Learn. The image is taken from the original artwork, which is absolutely stunning. The image was flipped when it appeared in print in Look & Learn issue 18 (19 May 1962) and was published facing a page of text about Haggard and a quote from the novel. The text of the feature is of interest as it may have been written by Mike Moorcock – after all these years even he can't be sure, but it is something he suspects he may have written.
We will have more news on the book, including a release schedule, shortly.
