Muddled Shadows

"Having been a lifetime Howard fan and lucky enough to adapt most of his bigger-than-life heroes like Conan, Kull, Red Sonja, and others to the comic format, Solomon Kane was the one holdout for me . . . " Bruce Jones

Apparently a lifetime Howard fan that doesn't know REH didn't create Red Sonja. Jones is writing the new Dark Horse comic book mini series, Red Shadows, which adapts two Robert E. Howard stories, Skulls in the Stars and Red Shadows into comic book form. Given that the online preview over at Previews World begins with the quote shown above and then shows a scene that isn't in Howard's Skulls in the Stars original story, I don't hold out a lot of hope for this one. And for some reason, Kane seems to be wearing a cowboy hat in some of the panels...
