The graphic versions of “Pigeons from Hell”

Today on Black Gate, I am again going back to my earlier material. Expanding on my August post about Robert E. Howard’s short story “Pigeons from Hell,” I review the two comic book adaptations, which are radically different in approach from each other.

First: Scott Hampton’s 1988 version for Eclipse Comics.

Second: Joe R. Lansdale’s and Nathan Fox’s 2008 version for Dark Horse Comics, now collected in trade paperback

Go over to Black Gate and to read more about it.
