    This was announced yesterday :

    Dark Horse Comics, together with Paradox Entertainment is pleased to announce that in addition to the critically acclaimed Conan ongoing series, there will be upcoming new and ongoing titles based on classic tales from master storyteller, Robert E. Howard!

    Kull of Atlantis- Magic, intrigue, and horror abound with Kull of Atlantis, the warrior who becomes a gladiator, and the gladiator who seizes a magnificent kingdom and crowns himself king. In the pre-cataclysmic world of 100,000 years ago, Kull holds his throne against conspirators, murderous rivals, and deadliest of all, the snake-headed Serpent Men. He broods over the mysteries of eternity, shatters unjust laws, and answers his enemies threats with razor-edged steel as his blood-brother Brule the Spear-slayer fights at his side. This new ongoing series will debut in 2007.

    Pigeons from Hell- Deep in the piney woods, the ruined Blassenville plantation house hides a secret from the cruel days of slavery. Two travelers awaken the horror when they camp out in the old house, but only one survives to seek help from the local sheriff. To clear his name of murder he must go back into the house at sunset, when the demons of the past are released from a torturous hell. But can he prove he isn't a killer and survive the deadly hatchet of the Zuvembie once again. Dramatized on Boris Karloffs classic Thriller television series and called one of the finest horror stories of the 20th century by Stephen King, this new graphic novel arrives in 2007 with master horror writer Joe Lansdale at the helm of this terrifying classic!

    Robert E. Howard's Savage Tales- Each issue of this new, ongoing series will feature one of Howard's masterful stories, with characters only he could create and in genres he helped define! Included will be tales such as Skull-Face, when shell-shocked war veteran, Stephen Costigan, meets the titular Master of Doom who plots to resurrect an evil empire...Vultures, where somber violence is paired with dark satire in this western thriller that focuses on gunslinger Steve Corcoran encountering conspiracy in a mining boomtown overrun by a gang known only as The Vultures. King of the Forgotten People has adventurer Jim Brill come face to face with a scientist who proves that there are those who will do anything -- even create monstrous beings -- to bring forth the ancient evil of Genghis Khan...Three-Bladed Doom, the name of a mystic dagger and weapon of choice for a group of mystical assassins who come face to face with the famed El Borak as he fights to stop them from reviving their terrifying, medieval cult...Worms of the Earth, a tale in which Bran Mak Morn sees the gates of time unlocked and savage beings let loose upon an ancient earth and Sword Woman, whose instinctive fighting skills are honed and put to the test in 16th century France as this woman warrior foils evil plots and battles those seeking vengeance.Whatever the tale, each issue will reveal new characters, high adventure, and excitement with every turn of the page!

    The collected works of Robert E.Howard represent a vast publishing opportunity and we have carefully selected the first stories and characters for comic book treatment says Fredrik Malmberg, Head of Licensing & Creative Affairs for Paradox Entertainment. The Conan project with Dark Horse naturally led to growing our relationship and we are thrilled to start working on these exciting new series.

    "Howard's work, all of his work, translates to comics better than just about any other literary medium. The raw energy and innovative imagery of his work is just what comics needs, and the incredible variety of his characters gives us endless possibilities says Scott Allie, Dark Horse Managing Editor. Any sort of adventure fiction you might want to see brought to life in comics, you can start with Howard, and it'll take you someplace interesting."

    Additional title information, release dates, and pricing will be forthcoming via press announcements through the coming year

      It was a bit of a surprise to me to find many of Howards works are begining to enter the public domain:

      I'm glad to see Howards lesser known characters and historical tales are beginning to get the comic book treatment in their original form. Previously some of these had been converted into Conan tales by Marvel in comics and Carter and DeCamp in books.

      Looks like Howard fans are in for a treat.
