1/ Conan, the temple of the tiger,
Conan becomes a prisoner of queen Sahriana
and her obedient warrior-women including their tamed tigers
worshipers of the tiger-god
by Michael Fleisher and John Buscema+Ernie Chan

n.b. this is one of the first well-drawn stories of
penciller Ernie Chan who demonstrates here his great drawing talent

2/ Solomon Kane, the one black stain
based on the real story of sir Thomas Doughty,
executed at St. Julian's Bay 1578
by Robert E. Howard, art by David Wenzel

Thomas Doughty (1545 – 2 July 1578) was an English nobleman,
soldier, scholar and personal secretary of Christopher Hatton,
his association with Francis Drake, on a 1577 voyage
to interfere with Spanish treasure fleets, ended in a shipboard trial
for treason and witchcraft and Doughty's execution.

although some scholars doubt the validity of the charges,
and question Drake's authority to try and execute Doughty,
the incident set an important precedent:
according to a history of the English Navy,
titled to Rule the Waves: how the British Navy
shaped the modern World by Arthur Herman,
Doughty's execution established the idea
that a ship's captain was its absolute ruler,
regardless of the rank or social class of its passengers
