    Thanks for posting Dan.

    I know nothing comes out of a vacuum. But this was 1977 and all that... and suddenly we get this sonic tear, this supernova of energy. Staggering. I still remember vividly...

    I appreciate the passion and it's well said. Unfortunately, I don't think it bears up to scrutiny very often. The idea of character growth is indeed a great ideal and one that great comics ought...

    I have to side, roughly, with the positions espoused here by Slam and MRP.

    The only way I'll bother with a comic is if it's a good comic. It always has to be quality over quantity for me. I'll...

    I wish I could recall the specific examples, but in those 70's reprints there was more than one occasion in which Marvel anachronistically inserted references to S.H.I.E.L.D. and Hydra in some of...

    Anyone interested in the long, storied and glorious career, and art (lots of great art) of Russ Heath should pick up a copy of Comic Book Creator #4. CBC is the latest, and I think most interesting,...

    Anyone who wants a taste of what a fine artist Fred Kida was should take a look at the recently published Complete Golden Age Airboy and Valkyrie by Canton Street Press. This is a modest little book,...

    I have that issue, but am lazy to check right now on that Conrad image. I was completely assuming that it was meant to be Conan. I am in all likelihood wrong. Hopefully I am!

    That's happened to me as well. I have stopped buying classic comics because, well, I have enough. I still love comics, but I feel myself needing to move on from them a bit. You've been around longer...

    I like Conrad's "Smith-like" Conan. But he is after all no where near as good looking BW's own. Kind of ugly. I belabour this point at times, but Howard does give you the distinct impression that...

    I think the giant idea is fair, if not provably correct.

    On the one hand there is no reason to attribute gigantism to the Hyperboreans, since they are derivative of the same migrating tribes as...

    Dark Horse is set to release a new edition of this work collecting the whole thing in one edition. I think it is being done in concert with PCR so some revisions or new commentary might be expected.

    That's what it looks like, doesn't it?

    It doesn't look to far removed from some early Broderick art I've seen in "Deadly Hands of Kung-Fu" and other places. But look at that blood and hair on...

    That would be sweet. Although I think New Gods in particular by his buddy Druillet would be even more spectacular visually, Moebius though is certainly the superior storyteller.

    Kirby

    I think you nailed it here RR in regards a problem with Bruce Jones, and perhaps a weakness inherent in a larger community of fantasy writers/artists when it comes to interpretations of Conan.

    I'd only partially agree, confining your reading to the historical fictions of REH.
