Lair of the Dragonslayers

I'm currently (as in 'just put down my Mitsubishi Micron Uni-pin fine liner') doing some lettering which, suddenly reminded me of these two very similar type treatments. The imagery is interestingly different takes on the same subject matter as well. There are interenet rumours that Don Bluth (who designed Dragons Lair) did the Dragonslayer logo whilst working at Disney, but then there is every possibility both logos were based off the same rub-down-transfer typeface, long lost to our digital age.

Then it's also a little surprising that nearly exactly the same treatment turns up on Citadels boxed Dragon range in the mid-late 80s.
