Makin' Chaykin: "Revenge of the Skull Of Jewels" by Leiber, O'Neil, and Chaykin

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! More Fafhrd and Gray Mouser you say? More ye shall receive! Today, let's get down with Sword of Sorcery #2 (February 1973), featuring Denny O'Neil and Howard Chaykin's adaptation of Fritz Leiber's "Thieves House"! The story is cool, and Chaykin's art (inked by the uncredited Crusty Bunkers) is sooo unique! The poses, facial expressions, and especially the costumes were (and still are) in a class by themselves. Man, I love me some Chaykin art--don't you? (And dig that Chaykin/Bernie Wrightson cover!)
