Monster Monday: Madame Xanadu 1981 poster and cover by Michael Kaluta

This nifty little poster was a full color glossy insert to Madame Xanadu #1 from 1981.

Madame Xanadu 1981 special pin-up by Michael Kaluta

This special one-shot gave Michael Kaluta's character the star treatment in a story by Steve Englehart and Marshall Rogers.  I believe this special was aimed at the direct market only.  The pin-up makes Xanadu look like a Doctor Strange type character.

Madame Xanadu 1 cover sans logo by Michael Kaluta

Here is Kaluta's cover to the special, sans any logos or letters, from the back cover.  Englehart and Rogers had more Madame Xanadu stories in the pipeline, but these morphed into the character Scorpio Rose for Eclipse Comics--see They Stole Frazier's Brain for more details.  Nuff Said!
