But this issue finds him in just as sticky a situation: the gremlins are convinced that Gus is here to save their home, not sell it!

    Meanwhile, Mr. Snide and his accomplices plan to scare the living daylights out of Gus in order to convince him to sell the "haunted" house . . . and they're about to get more than they bargained for.

    Written by Mike Richardson!

    ROBERT E. HOWARD'S CONAN: THE FRAZETTA COVER SERIES #2 (of 8)

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    Writers: Kurt Busiek
    Pencils: Cary Nord
    Covers: Frank Frazetta
    Colorists: Dave Stewart

    "GOD IN THE BOWL"
    This second installment in the Conan Frazetta Cover Series celebrating 75 years of the legendary barbarian, adapts Robert E. Howard's classic tale of murder and intrigue, "The God in the Bowl." This story marks the Cimmerian's first encounter with the deadly sorcerer Thoth-amon and his menagerie of vile giant serpentine creatures-brought to life by the stunning painting "Chained" by the living legend Frank Frazetta, featured for the first time ever in comics!

    "I much prefer illustrating the tales of Robert E. Howard. They are much stronger in mood and narration than those of Burroughs and allow a wider range of illustrative interpretations. As St. John is remembered for Edgar Rice Burroughs and Tarzan, I would like to be remembered for REH and Conan. I feel a certain sense of loss that Howard isn't alive to appreciate what I've done with Conan." --Frank Frazetta

    Part 1 of 6
    Dean and Sam Winchester were raised as Hunters by their widowed father, seeking vengeance on the supernatural elements that took their mother from them. But the road to vengeance is a dark one, and is it a place where children can have any semblance of a life?

    Picking up several years after Supernatural: Origins, the boys are now old enough to join John on his cross-country "hunting trips." Amid the carnage and violence, John's seeking something specific: any information on why his wife was murdered. But is he prepared for the answers that he'll find? And is he willing to sacrifice his 11-year-old son Dean to this hard, lonely life by giving him his first "hunt"?
