The spotlight on books from Marvel’s Epic Comics imprint continues, with a look at Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser:
Fritz Leiber’s Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser series is my all-time, absolute favoritest fantasy series, ever. I love, love, love these books. And while I’m not much for reading comic book adaptations of novels, they actually lend themselves quite well to the medium, as most of them are just collections of shorter stories, as opposed to a single long novel. And how could you go wrong with Mike friggin Mignola drawing them?!? Howard Chaykin does a wonderful job of adapting the script.
This 4 issue series came out in 1991. Dark Horse collected it into a TPB in 2007.
