BOOM Studios releases Hawks of Outremer
Robert E. Howard’s lesser-known character with a sword, Cormac Fitzgeoffrey, is in comic book stores this week, the lead hand in BOOM Studios adaptation of Howard’s 1931 short story Hawks of Outremer.
Hawks is set during the Third Crusade and brings Cormac to Outremer where the battle-loving Irish chief soon meets King Richard for a little less-than-PC skull smashing action in all its unapologetic glory.
The comic adaptation, the first for the Howard short story, is being handled by writer Michael Alan Nelson and artist Damian Couceiro.
BOOM is adapting the tale over four monthly issues. If the rest are as entertaining as the first, the book is well worth dropping by your local comic shop for.
