Inspirational Reading for My Upcoming Crypts & Things Campaign - Sword of Sorcery Issue #1
Once I committed to running Crypts & Things for my lapsed gamers group, I decided I needed some inspirational reading.
Lo and behold I found the 1973 comic book series Sword of Sorcery, starring Fritz Lieber's very own Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser on eBay. The series only lasted 5 issues, and I grabbed issues 1 thru 3 (and 4 was thrown in as a bonus, so just one more to grab).
Denny O'Neil wrote the adaptation and Howard Chaykin did the pencils.
Not bad at all. I vaguely remember reading the original it was based on, but it's been at least 20 years. Yeah, I guess I need to reread the originals at some point.
