Memphis, Capital of Mighty Erypt

“Surrounded by gigantic walls, mighty Memphis stood before us; no other city in Erypt was so beautiful, so great, so richly decorated. I could not believe my eyes.”

The above image comes from François Marcela-Froideval’s masterful series of graphic novels Chroniques de la Lune Noire. Specifically, Methraton 02 – Le Crâne (2003), written by Froideval and illustrated by Fabrice Druet. I don’t speak a word of French, and only the first four books have been translated into English, but as you can see above, the art itself is worth the price. (As always, click to embiggen.)

1 thought on “Memphis, Capital of Mighty Erypt

  1. For a capital of a "Mighty" State, Memphis sure doesn't look like more than 1,000 – 2,000 inhabitants live within the city walls. This city would be dwarfed by most major cities in the Flanaess.
