Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser Strike Again

Via Sci-Fi Wire, it’s been announced that Dark Horse Comics has acquired the rights to Fritz Leiber’s stories of Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser (collected in a number of volumes, such as The First Book of Lankhmar and The Second Book of Lankhmar). Dark Horse plans to republish the stories, as well as reprinting a comic adaption by Mike Mignola and Howard Chaykin.

Most exciting of all, Dark Horse will launch a new original series, which will adapt stories into comic form as well as produce original comic stories (much like Kurt Busiek and Cary Nord have done, to popular and critical success, with Conan). Hopefully the team on the original comic series will be as high-caliber as Busiek-Nord and Mignola-Chaykin.
