Pigeons From Hell

Sunday, November 8th, 2009

Robert E Howard’s much-loved gothic bayou horror classic, Pigeons From Hell, has been adapted into a graphic novel — and updated:

Lansdale’s update of the story — the new protagonists are a pair of sisters descended from the slaves who inherited the house from their masters; they go to take possession with their friends in a kind of Scooby Doo pack — only lightly changes the material, leaving the scare intact.

Only lightly changes the material? Seriously? Adding a Scooby gang? And shifting the story from when slavery was within living memory to now, in the 21st century?
