Synopsis for "The Eye of the Serpent"

  • Synopsis not yet written


  • The Eye of the Serpent is freely adapted from the story The Valley of Iskander by Robert E. Howard, a tale of El Borak discovering the legendary valley in which live Greek descendants of Alexander the Great.[1]
    • The original story when first penciled by Howard Chaykin had the inhabitants of the valley to be Atlantean descendants of men left there by King Kull, but Roy Thomas had had enough for a time of lost races from the past, and decided to take a page from T.H. White's The Once and Future King, in which old Merlin "lives backwards".[2]
  • Goodwin is consulting editor.
  • Letters (issue pages): Wohl page 1, Orzechowski (uncredited) pages 2-6, Rosen (uncredited) pages 7-31.
