Kull and the Barbarians #2 - Neal Adams, Bernie Wrightson art


Kull and the Barbarians v1 #2, 1975 - Wandering the African continent, the pious Solomon Kane encounters a pair of bloodthirsty attackers. Written by Robert E. Howard, this tale accompanies the main story featuring King Kull. Neal Adams' skillfully applied inks complement Alan Weiss' pencils, mostly due to their similar styles. Adams' influence is stronger on the first few pages, especially on the characters' faces. Bernie Wrightson contributes his own version of Kane. The frontispiece showcases the artist's dramatic use of light and shadow. Other artists in this issue include Howard Chaykin. This is number 1 of 1 Kull and the Barbarians issues with Adams art and/or covers and number 1 of 1 Kull and the Barbarians issues with Wrightson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Adams, Wrightson or Kull and the Barbarians issues. See also this blog's Adams checklist, Top 10 Adams comics, Wrightson checklist or Top 10 Wrightson comics.
