Mick Van Houten is the artist whose fantasy-themed landscape illustration was featured on the cover of the Polish translation of The Black Company. When the publisher, Rebis, republished the title almost a decade later, they flipped Van Houten's painting horizontally (in addition to updating the lettering and adding a subtitle), as seen below. Prior to its appearance in the Black Company series, Van Houten's painting originally appeared on the cover of Poul and Karen Anderson's novel The Dog and the Wolf: King of Ys Volume 4.
