Black and White Wednesday: "The Hyborian Age Chapter 5: Fire and Slaughter" by Thomas and Simonson

Hey, hey, hey, Groove-ophiles! Roy Thomas and Walt Simonson are back with the fifth chapter of their adaptation of Robert E. Howard's "The Hyborian Age"! "Fire and Slaughter" was first published in Savage Sword of Conan #16 (November 1976), by the way. Enjoy!


  1. I always love B & W wednesdays!!Anything written by Roy & drawn by Walt rocks! CCCRROOMMM!!!

  2. Thanks for posting these histories - always a pleasure to look upon Simonson's early artwork, especially in b/w

  3. Crom and Mitra! Nice adaptation of REH's essay by Roy and Walt, Groove! Great stuff!

    - Mike from Trinidad & Tobago.

  4. It was a surprising treat to see Simonson on the last few issues of the Indestructible Hulk, especially with the old school Thor.
