Compared to his other books the scenery is not as important than the women (and men) he painted. Yeah, they are beautiful as usual, often in violent positions. The highlights are on them, in great detail (also as usual). It's as simple - and great - as that.
Royo's work no longer needs any justification except itself. Whether or not you're a fan of the (mostly) second-rate science-fiction Royo lands the commissions for, there is no denying the power and the scope of these illustrations. In reading Royo's liner notes, you get the distinct impression he no longer cares whether or not you find hidden meaning or anything transcendental in his artistry... you're simply presented with a stark "Hey, you like my work or not?" After a journey through this collection, there's no way you could answer with anything other than "Yes!"
