team reunites for the forthcoming "Atomic Action" title from my Atomic Pulp publishing label, Savage Sagas
, featuring "Crom The Barbarian," based on the very first barbarian hero in comics, created by Gardner F. Fox
and John Giunta
in 1950. The Savage Sagas
one-shot will feature Crom in "Where The Grim God Creeps," written by Yours Truly, penciled and inked by Eisner Award-winning artist Rick Burchett
, and colored by industry veteran Matt Webb
|Vintage appearances of Crom and Cave Girl|
The back-up story stars Gardner Fox
& Bob Powell's
creation, "Cave Girl," in "The Devil Came Down The Mountain." This one is also written by me, with art by the great Neil Vokes
, and colors by Matt. I've got a couple of terrific artists lined up for the cover(s) - I'll announce them when I'm ready to share the final cover art.
According to Rick, he always wanted to draw a sword & sorcery comic, but no one ever offered him one before. I can't wait to see pages on this! I'm planning a Kickstarter campaign for this book in the Fall, and hopefully, the book will be on sale in early '19.
