Our pals at Dark Horse Comics have given us a sneak peek at the powerful cover [Edit: by Esad Ribic] for Robert E. Howard’s Savage Sword #1, which drops on December 22, just in time to save your holidays from hordes of
late shoppers barbarians.
Each eighty-page issue of Savage Sword will showcase the exploits of Howard’s heroes in new comic adventures and restored reprints of classic tales, featuring the work of industry legends and talent like Barry Windsor Smith (Conan), Paul Tobin (Spider-Man & the Secret Wars), Wellinton Alves (Nova), Marc Andreyko (Manhunter), Robert Atkins (G.I. Joe), Tim Bradstreet (Punisher), and more. The first issue also includes Roy Thomas, Tim Conrad, and Barry Windsor-Smith’s Savage Sword of Conan epic, “Worms of the Earth,” recolored and reprinted in its entirety.
Carla Speed McNeil’s Eisner Award-winning Finder series will continue with an original graphic novel title Voice, on sale on February 16. Dark Horse describes the plot thusly: “In a society defined by its intricate network of clans, Rachel Grosvenor has grown up an outcast, straddling worlds. Now, her quest for admission to a highly exclusive clan sends Rachel spiraling into the dark underbelly of Anvard and a paradox that holds the key to her future: How do you find a Finder?”
