Group Description


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

The successful Conan Dark Horse series by Kurt Busiek and Cary Nord was followed by Timothy Truman on writing duties with art from Tomàs Giorello. They moved onto the King Conan title with firstly Brian Wood and now Fred Van Lente writing the on-going book.

Various Kull and Solomon Kane series have followed along with an updated version of Pigeons from Hell and now an anthology title The Savage Sword of Robert E.Howard.

There's also been an adaptation of Hawks of Outremer from BOOM Studios , a Breck Elkins webcomic at http://www.breckinridgeelkins.com/ and Red Sonja stories are being published by Dynamite Entertainment

I'm sure names such as DeCamp,Carter,Schwarzenegger,Milius etc.will crop up at times but I very much hope that members will find the "real " Howard through his work now appearing from Wandering Star,Subterranean Press,Del Rey,The REH Foundation,Wildside Press,Bison Books,Gollancz etc as well as magazines,articles etc. put out by those in Howard fandom
