This is fantastic! I was really surprised at how much I loved this. Was expecting something mediocre, but it came out surprising me at every turn. For fans of Hellboy, or other paranormal investigation type of literature... you'll love this Puritan have a go at fighting creatures.
Because he died at such a young age, Howard didn't get to leave as sizeable a legacy of Solomon Kane stories as fans might have wanted. In the last nearly 80 years since his debut, other authors have penned more Solomon Kane tales than Howard. Nearly all of them have been in comic form.
That venue continues in the latest graphic novel release from Dark Horse Comics: Solomon Kane: The Castle of the Devil. Hellboy-creator Mike Mignola drew the awesome cover which immediately drew my eye, and interior artist Mario Guevara kept up the tone throughout the story written by Scott Allie.
The graphic novel collects the first five issues of the new Dark Horse comics series, and I'm glad I read them in the collected edition. I couldn't imagine having to get and read this story piecemeal month by month. In fact, the book would be better read late at night when the house is quiet, or on a camping trip after everyone else has gone to bed. The atmosphere then would be a perfect reading experience.
The book opens with an excellent action sequence that shows off Solomon Kane's deadly skills to their fullest, as well as the supernatural that flavors most of the stories. Guevara's art is fantastic, and Allie shows good sense in staying off the page and letting his artist carry the weight at this point.Read more ›

Unlike Conan, another Robert E. Howard character, Solomon Kane is lean and mean. He wields a sword against the Lord's enemies -- vengeance is he! Read morePublished on June 12, 2011 by Critic's Corner
