This group celebrates the characters created by Robert E Howard that have appeared in comic books from Marvel Comics,Dark Horse Comics,BOOM Studios,Cross Plains Comics,Dynamite Entertainment etc.
The reason for my return to comics in the early 70's was Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor-Smith's run on Marvel's Conan the Barbarian.Later Smith was followed by the legendary John Buscema.Of special interest though were the articles by Roy,Glenn Lord,Fred Blosser,Robert Yaple,Jim Neal etc.that appeared in Savage Tales and Savage Sword of Conan.These put me in touch with the life of Robert E Howard the man behind the stories and eventually led me to Cross Plains in '06
