Speaking of the obscure characters of pulp writer Robert E. Howard who managed to churn out a jillion characters before taking his own life at the age of 31, his Texan character Breckenridge Elkins is getting adapted as a webcomic by Gary Chaloner (Red Kelo, John Law) and Cayetano Garza. Elkins was one of Howard’s more successful character during his lifetime, and the comic has a nice rugged look.
