Acquisitions

   Wednesday was a very good night for me at the comic book store. Not only did the second volume of Dark Horse's collected Brothers of the Spear come in, but also the trade collection of Conan: The Phoenix on the Sword, and a new Doc Savage book, Death's Dark Domain. So plenty of stuff for me to buy.
   Then the mail brought the latest offering from the Robert E. Howard Foundation, a whole book of REH's Pirate Adventures, featuring favorites such as Black Vulmea's Vengeance and The Isle of Pirates' Doom, plus some never before printed fragments and even some photos of a young Howard dressed as a pirate. The REH Foundation continues to put out some quality books.
   So yeah, Russ Manning and Doc Savage and Conan and REH. I'd call that a good night.
