I read Volume 1 in this series and noticed that the best stories were the adaptations of real Howard stories. The same held true for this volume. Fortunately, most of the adaptations were from Howard's stuff ("Shadows in Zamboula," "The Devil in Iron," "The People of the Black Circle," and "The Tower of the Elephant"; I forget whether or not "The Slithering Shadow" is original Howard, an adaptation from an unfinished manuscript or a completely original pastiche).

Bibliowulf "The Slithering Shadow" is an original and complete Howard story. 1/3 of the way through though it somewhat botches up its own sense of growing supernatural horror, so I can see how in the less skillful hands a graphic adaptation of it may come off looking like a pastiche.
