Wulf The Barbarian!
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: Comic Book Artists


Wulf The Barbarian!


I've recently become FaceBook Friends with Larry Hama, (pictured below), who is known for his many projects in the Comics World.

 Click Here To See Our Current Listings including several of Larry Hama's works listed for sale!

One that doesn't appear in many of his bios or credits is the Atlas Seaboard Comic Book Series, 'Wulf The Barbarian'.

Larry wrote the script and did the pencils on issues #1-2 of this 4 issue series.

I recently picked up a collection of Atlas - Seaboard Comics and decided to re-read them, as it has been a few years since I did so.

Wulf the Barbarian was an unusual sword and sorcery title for its' time. I enjoyed the first two issues of this series by Larry.

Larry went on to become a writer of another barbarian, Conan the Barbarian for Marvel Comics! He also become an editor for that series later.

Wulf's adventures took place on an unamed planet.

He was seen as a street beggar at first. We find out that he was actually the orphaned son of a king, and that his royal protector, Stavro, must hide him for ten years until Wulf becomes of age to take back the royal throne.

However Stravo himself is killed by minions of the man that killed Wulf's father. Wulf takes on the quest to avenge Stravo and also reclaim his throne.

Issue #3 was written by Steve Skeates and drawn by Leo Summer. Issue #4 was written by Mike Friedrich and Jim Craig was the penciller.

I re-read the entire series, and realized that although I enjoyed the series as a whole, it was the first two issues that set the pace for the series.

Unfortunately this four issue series is just one of the twenty-three comic book series that were ended far too soon when Atlas Seaboard closed its' doors in 1975.

Martin Goodman, who had started what we now know as Marvel Comics, had started this Atlas Seaboard Company in 1974, after he had sold Marvel Comics.

There are 22 other comic book titles that could be blogged about here, as well as 5 magazine titles that Atlas Seaboard also published.

Those will wait for another time, as this blog post is about Larry Hama's contribution to the Wulf the Barbarian title for Atlas Seaboard.

For those of you that are new to our blog today, we have an ongoing 'Comic Con and Pop Culture Show' ourselves here at "Make It So Marketing Inc.", what with our daily blog posts and new listings of items for sale in our online store!
