Robert E. Howard Panel: Solomon Kane, Conan, Oh My

medium_solomon-kane.jpg Robert E. Howard's Solomon Kane is being made into a comic book series from Dark Horse (and is also being turned into a movie).

Dark Horse's original Conan editor, Scott Allie, writes the series, with art by Mario Guevara and Dave Stewart, who reinvents his revolutionary color technique from Conan.

Robert E. Howard's vengeance-obsessed puritan begins his supernatural adventures in the haunted Black Forest of Germany in this five-issue adaptation of Howard's "The Castle of the Devil."

When Solomon Kane stumbles upon the body of a boy hanged from a rickety gallows, he goes after the man responsible--a baron feared by the peasants from miles around. Something far worse than the devilish baron or the terrible, intelligent wolf that prowls the woods lies hidden in the ruined monastery beneath the baron's castle.

With art and writing that perfectly captures the pulp weirdness of his birth, Solomon Kane officially becomes the only Puritan I've ever been a fan of. Don't miss out on these weird tales, you'll regret it.
—Ed Brubaker (Award-winning writer of Captain America, Criminal, and Iron Fist)
