Ron Embleton's "The Secret Of The Trolls"

Disneyland #280 - August 1976

I came across a stack of Disneyland in a market a few years back. I wish I had been carrying more cash. I only had enough for half-a-dozen copies, and this is the only one I can find for the moment. I had never heard of this magazine before and I was stunned when I opened it up to find this beautiful strip by the magnificent Ron Embleton. 

I'll post more if and when I find them.


  1. I still have the whole story that was originally printed in Once Upon a Time magazine in 1970. You can sometimes find copies of that magazine for sale as well. I've also been lucky enough to buy 5 original RE paintings, three of them from the Trolls. Ron Embleton has featured in my blog a few times as he is my favourite artist - one if my entries
    includes some more illustrations from the story - regards Sharon

  2. Thanks so much for the link. You have some really fabulous Ron Embleton art there. I'll but up a link to your blog if you don't mind. I'm sure a lot of Ron's fans would love to see these examples of his work.

  3. Thanks - that's great. I've always been a great admirer of Ron Embleton's art and I've realised there are a lot of other people out there who enjoy his work as much as I do!
