This June BOOM! Studios is bringing Robert E. Howard‘s Hawks Of Outremer to the masses in comic form for the first time ever!
If you’re not familiar with the story, it features Cormac FitzGeoffrey, a wandering warrior born and bred on the battlefield. A renowned fighter, a ruthless adversary, and a man that is no stranger to bloodshed and violence. When he learns of the murder of his most recent liege, nothing will stop his quest for revenge. By oath, a path of vengeance will be marked by the blood of his enemies.
Michael Alan Nelson (28 Days Later) will be handling writing duties on the book with artist Damian Caouceiro (Nola) and the first issue will feature covers by Joe Jusko (The Savage Sword Of Conan) and Karl Richardson (Slaine).
BOOM! Studios Marketing Director Chip Mosher commented:
“This is sword swinging, beserker action only the way Robert E. Howard and BOOM! Studios can deliver. The action is so non-stop, comic fans really to need to make sure you read ROBERT E. HOWARD’S HAWKS OF OUTREMER close to a hospital because once you open the pages, you might just get cut!”
Robert E. Howard’s Hawks Of Outremer will be a four issue mini-series and will debut in June.
