The writing and the artwork led me to purchase some of the other compilations of the writings of Robert E. Howard. Truly, Howard as an author was ahead of his time, both in the prose and the scope of creating a fictional world where men of "...gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth..." roamed the land. Having now read many of the new comics, as well as the older Howard writings, I can attest that they comics are faithful adaptations to the original works. I would think that Howard would approve of them. Truly, these comics look to me to have a dirty, grimy, and realistic feel to them, compared to other current comics, where clean lines and ink move from one panel to the next.
I would like to think that you will enjoy these compilations as much as I have. I now return to the Hyborian age...
Its a shame that this group of artists/writers didn't keep going for more than 4 books.
altering the antagonist (male/female) looking for excitement- by changing the characters or content- This is MY FAVORITE- R.E.H. would be proud of this. Close to the original story (and ever true to the theme) Barbarism "Man's Natural State." We can see right through the "foolishness" and hypocrisy of civil government. As an "art piece" -excellent- Story superb- character development-
