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.

These prints are hand-signed by Michael Whelan, exclusively available through Suntup Editions for your private collection. Limited to just 50 copies per size, worldwide.

One of my all time favorite King covers !

Another Beautiful Suntup Production

Suntup does it again with a beautiful print of the limited edition Firestarter cover. The colors are so rich and vibrant. I am proud and so happy this is now in my collection.

The unparalled power of Michael Whelan

Still blown away from last month's release of Whelan's Gunslinger with remarque Paul blindsides us devotees of King with Whelan's majestic FIRESTARTER and it is a true work of beauty. Having bought the photoprints from Michael many years back I had them framed and prominently placed on my wall. The suntup print is even better with incredible detail brought to light with the best printing available and another winner from the house of Suntup.
