(NOTE: I’ve updated this page after seeing the comment from ‘G’ below)
I had this poster up on my wall when I was a kid. I bought it, naturally enough, because it had Smaug the dragon on it, but there was always a part of me that wondered - why was Smaug flying over Minas Morgul..?
I’ll admit, I did wonder if it wasn’t Smaug at all, but was any old dragon flying around any old castle and the poster people had just given it a Tolkien-inspired title just to sucker in Hobbit fans like me.
Well - according to ‘G’ below, closely related to the artist himself, it definitely IS Smaug the Magnificent - and that’s good enough for me. I feel a bit guilty for having doubted all these years.
Go Smaug, go!
