Sean the Barbarian!

In stores today you'll find Robert E. Howard's Savage Sword #4, which features "White Death," a nine-page story written by Pete Doree with moody, monochromatic art by our own Sean Phillips, who has been showing us preview art since October. (Search his blog for "Conan".)

Like the previous issues, the book reaches beyond the sword-and-sorcery genre to feature a wide range of the famed writer's pulp characters in new stories and classic reprints. The Dark Horse title includes sketches, the occasional illustrated prose story, and not too many ads. Published every five months, the 80-page anthology really is worth the eight-buck cover price, even for those who are, like me, only passing tourists in Howard's world.
