Published cir. 2014Swords of Thunder is a collection of art by F. NEWTON BURCHAM in honor of R.E. Howard who was masterful and prolific in the world of fantasy art amongst noted contemporaries such as Frank Frazetta.Presented here is a superb scene from the story, Red Nails, which was an early Conan story by Howard first published in Weird Tale back in 1936. This illustration also features a really awesome gorilla in a cape, what's not to love?!
After working as an assistant inker to Tony DeZuniga on Savage Sword of Conan and Jonah Hex, in the 1980's Burcham created a number of new characters including the supernatural hero Dark Wolf, a predecessor to Spawn.
