New at Howard Works

This week it was confirmed for me that the recent Goodman Games pulp
replicas are NOT new publications. Goodman Games is merely selling
Girasol Pulp Replicas and Adventure House Pulp Facsimile reprints.
Consequently, Goodman Games has been removed from Howard Works.

Coming in June!

Tom Waltz (writer) • Luca Pizzari (art) • Luca Pizzari (color)

Robert E. Howard’s legendary warrior king returns! The evil Serpent Men have attempted to infiltrate and enslave mankind from the time of the very first humans… only to be defeated at every turn by the Elder Race’s ultimate warrior… Kull of Atlantis! And now they must call on Kull once more, as the Serpent Men make a last-ditch gambit to first conquer America… and then the world. Kull’s long journey has come full circle—once a small boy who fled his home of Atlantis, which was lost to a monstrous cataclysm… now a modern warrior who must save the New Atlantis from monstrous creatures!

Full Color, 32 pages, $3.99

From writer Tom Waltz:
“The classic Howard stories have been re-told to near perfection through comic iterations of the past and there’s no reason to reinvent the wheel — so I felt we could try something a bit different while still staying true to the core elements that have made Kull such a beloved character for so long,” Waltz continued. “‘Kull Eternal’ is that idea — using the Howard-penned tale (and one of my personal favorites) ‘The Mirrors of Tuzun Thune’ as its foundation, IDW will take Kull on a journey through time… a strange journey that will combine modern conspiracies and political intrigue with the supernatural and sword and sorcery underpinnings of the warrior king’s past. This will be Kull as he’s never been seen before… and yet as legendary as ever. A weird tale we hope is worthy of all the fantastically weird tales that have come before.”
