Frank Brunner In The Chamber Of Chills

Here's the wonderful Frank Brunner, another artist who didn't do nearly enough stuff in The Bronze Age, adapting two of Robert E. Howard's finest horror tales for The Chamber Of Chills, so, y'know, basically as good as it gets.
The Monster From The Mound is a texan tall tale which, were it not for Conan, would be the main genre REH would be known for, while The Thing On The Roof is Howard doing Lovecraft, something he tried a few times, him and H.P. being pen pals and all. Imagine REH & Lovecraft collaborating on a story illustrated by Brunner. This isn't quite that great, but we're not far off.
