Season 9 Episode 5: The Adaptations of "Queen of the Black Coast"!

Greetings, Cromrades! This week we set sail yet again, aboard The Tigress this time and with a different captain! We return to the Hyborian Age to discuss "Queen of the Black Coast", focusing on the original text and two comic book adaptations of the story; one from Marvel by Roy Thomas and John Buscema, and the other from Dark Horse by Brian Wood and Becky Cloonan! We also dig into the philosophy of adapting materials from one medium to another. Get ready, this one's an adventure!
