Though the early reviews for the feature film adaptation have been abyssmal, Dark Horse’s “Solomon Kane” franchise has always been a very strong title for the company. So it must come as no surprise that starting this month they will be releasing an all new arc featuring their popular gothic cowboy. Read on for the details.
Taking place after the events in Solomon Kane: The Castle of the Devil — but written to stand on its own — this new series delves deep into the horrors scattered throughout Germany’s Black Forest. When Kane comes across gypsies being terrorized by roving bandits, he’s not sure what’s worse — the bandits who wish to rob and rape innocent travelers or the evils that spew forth from the forest, intent on killing every man and woman around! With creature designs by Eisner Award-winning artist Guy Davis, this series uses Robert E. Howard’s “Death’s Black Riders” fragment and the “Rattle of Bones” short story as springboards to launch into a suspenseful and terrifying new excursion with Howard’s troubled Puritan hero.
Dark Horse’s new Solomon Kane series features the return of writer Scott Allie and artist Mario Guevara (The Lone Ranger and Tonto), who are joined by colorist Juan Ferreyra (Rex Mundi) and cover artist Darick Robertson (The Boys, Transmetropolitan)!
“With art and writing that perfectly captures the pulp weirdness of his birth, Solomon Kane officially becomes the only Puritan I’ve ever been a fan of. Don’t miss out on these weird tales, you’ll regret it.” -Ed Brubaker
