Acquisitions

   Stellar group of books purchased last night. S.T. Joshi's Collected Essays on Lovecraft, a new adaptation of Michael Moorcock's Elric, a collection of Sub-Mariner/Human Torch Comics by Roy Thomas and Rich Buckler, and the latest volume collecting Savage Sword of Conan. This one features Tim Truman's first art job on Conan, by the way, long before he started drawing and writing the character for dark Horse. See? I did get Conan into a post!

The Elric french comic is a really good adaptation quite gory in showing the Melniboneans decadence,also the first Truman's Conan story is quite good,one of my favourites stories written by Dixon.

I didn't know about the Truman content. I might need to grab that, then.
