This is the Good Old Stuff, the Solomon Kane comics from the heady 1970s when the dour Puritan was first published in graphic form. In my opinion, these are first rate stories that capture Kane near perfectly. Here is the low-down from Dark Horse:
THE SAGA OF SOLOMON KANE
Written by Robert E. Howard, Roy Thomas and Don Glut, penciled by David Wenzel, Howard Chaykin, Alan Weiss and Steve Carr, inked by Neal Adams, Al Williamson and Bill Wray.
From his pulp-fiction origins in Weird Tales to his latest Dark Horse incarnation, Robert E. Howard’s sixteenth-century Puritan adventurer has captured the imaginations of readers for decades. Now all of the Savage Sword of Conan short stories from the 1970s are collected for the first time: equal parts comics adaptations of Howard’s formative tales and inspired new chapters from venerable scribes Roy Thomas (Conan the Barbarian) and Don Glut (Kull the Destroyer). Follow along Kane’s restless travels with pistol and rapier as he is compelled to be a weapon of God, ridding the world of evil wherever it may be found — from the jungles of Africa to the high seas, and whether cannibal, demon, vampire, or pirate!
Contains short stories from various Savage Sword of Conan and Conan Saga issues, and from Kull and the Barbarians #2 and #3, Marvel Preview #19, Monsters Unleashed, and Dracula Lives.
This collection is 416 pages, black and white, $19.95, and in stores on June 3 from Dark Horse Comics.
