Savage Sagas is an anthology title focusing on the more barbaric side of the #AtomicAction Universe, with stories featuring ancient axe-slinging warriors and the lords and ladies of lost, primeval jungles. Two issues are currently planned. Issue #1 stars two Gardner Fox creations: Crom the Barbarian and Cave Girl, while Issue #2 features another Fox creation (with Frank Frazetta), Thun’da, Lord of the Lost Land!
Issue #1: Crom the Barbarian!
Based on the character created by Gardner F. Fox & John Guinta

Issue #1 of Savage Sagas features “Temple of the Creeping Death,” written & lettered by Christopher Mills, illustrated by Rick Burchett, and colored by Matt Webb. Variant Covers by Sergio Cariello (Cover “A”), Jeff Cram & Matt Webb (Cover “B”), and Rick Burchett & Matt Webb (Cover “C”).
Comicdom’s first sword & sorcery hero returns with an all-new, epic adventure! When Crom, the Unthroned King, comes to the rescue of a beautiful gypsy girl, he may have found himself more trouble than he – and his trusty battleaxe Skull-Splitter – can handle: ferocious feline hunters, brutal Neanderthals and a nameless horror from the very pit of Hell!
Plus: The feral Cave Girl stars in her own blood-spattered back-up tale, “The Devil Came Down the Mountain!”
