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
So yeah, Russ Manning and Doc Savage and Conan and REH. I'd call that a good night.
