Release date: 2.09.10 - Robert E. Howard's Desert Adventures featuring El Borak, Kirby O'Donnell, and Steve Clarney is a book I'm massively excited about. I contributed near 70 illustrations in glorious, powerful black and white for this edition which also features brand new paintings by Jim and Ruth Keegan. The Desert Adventures is the stuff of great passion for me, pulp adventure in the grandest sense, penned by the MASTER of the craft. Howard is also the creator of Conan, Solomon Kane, King Kull, and the dark King of the Picts, Bran Mak Morn.
I was very fortunate when searching for a model to portray El Borak, the always accommodating star of Hung, Stander, The Mist, and The Punisher, Thomas Jane himself answered the call and donned the khakis (even put spurs to a horse!) in service to our undertaking. The photo shoots themselves were a blast of epic proportions. Hopefully that shows in the illustrations. The book itself is littered with them. Click the link above and check it out. Grab your scimitar, your Lee Enfield rifle, and the trusty steed of your choosing and come join us won't you?
