Solomon Kane


The Saga of Solomon Kane

After completing the reading of Kull, I will move onto another of Robert E. Howard's characters; Solomon Kane. I have to admit to never having read any comics or books about this character in the past - I only have the James Purefoy movie version to go from.The film was OK but I found it fell into too many typical fantasy tropes and it became too much of a pastiche for my liking.
