Ive always been a huge fan of the black and white comic magazines, be it Conan, Kull, Creepy, Eerie or anything similar. They just seem a little more mature and have a little more of an edge to them.

Kull is an underrated character, as he mostly stays in the shadow of his more famous companion, Conan. However, many fans like the Kull stories better. I don't really like Kull better than Conan (I'm actually more of a Soloman Kane guy) but I will say this is a really good read. Many of the stories a

Incredibly inconsistent. I guess this is to expected because Kull, especially the mature pieces (presented here), had a sporadic publishing history. The selection here is over 15 years time. The art is inconsistent, ranging from pretty awesome (not on par with the best Conan stuff) to awful. The writing ranges from solid Roy Thomas (not on par with the best Conan stuff) to boring and pointless.

One of the issues is that many stories feel the need to rehash Kull's origin story, probably to introdu

Une superbe anthologie de DHC rassemblant en un seul volume plus d'une trentaine de bandes dessinées de Kull - personnage de Robert E. Howard créé dans les années 1920 antérieurement à Conan le Cimmérien - publiées à l'origine chez Marvel au courant des années 70.

Les dessins sont parfois approximatifs. Les récits se ressemblent souvent : Kull s'ennuie dans sa routine de monarque, une intrigue ou un événement imprévu qui menace le trône ou le souverain survient, une première confrontation a lieu

What a great set of stories. These stories are taken from magazines which spread over fifteen years so even though you may get some repetition, particularly in reference to Kull's origin, the stories never get old. The storylines progressively move forward in time with some flashbacks, but there is one story that drops noticably and that is the reclaiming of the throne when Thulsa Doom takes it over. One story Kull loses it and is searching out for an army and the next story he's back on the thr ...more
The tales contained in this volume are of varing quality. Some are excellent, others leave much left to be desired. Kull was clearly not as well developed a character as Conan was during their years at Marvel Comics. If you are a fan of sword & sorcery fiction this is probably a solid and entertaining read otherwise I'd suggest reading Robert E. Howard's original Kull stories instead.

These stories are not bad little S&S snippets; fun stories often with really good B&W art. (I do wish that Marvel had chosen to depict Thulsa Doom in a way that did not make him look like Skeletor from He-man.)
