Last month, we introduced our first of two spectacular cover art prints signed by artist Michael Whelan, The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger. We are now delighted to reveal the Firestarter Limited Edition Cover as the second of our Whelan additions to The Covers Collection.
Published by Phantasia Press in 1980, the same year as the novel’s wide release, the limited edition of Firestarter features Charlie exhibiting her pyrokinesis power at full blast. This gorgeous painting predates the movie version by 4 years. Whelan used his niece Laina as his model, but many fans have commented on the girl’s similarity to Drew Barrymore. The cover art for this edition so impressed Stephen King at the time that he personally recommended Whelan as the artist for the Donald M. Grant edition of The Gunslinger.
