Sailor Steve Costigan and Mike



Steve Costigan is my absolute favorite Robert E. Howard character and it's a bummer that he doesn't get the same attention as the others. The stories are funny, odd, brutal (sometimes) and totally lovable.
Oh, and I followed the original description as opposed to the blonde, striped shirt guy he's now depicted as.

  1. Im a big fan of Robert E. Howard but am not at all familiar with his non-fantasy works. Sounds like a really fun read! Howard may very well be the king of pulp-fiction writing... is the dog his side kick or something? great piece bro, he really pops off the page, er screen.

  4. I think it would be awesome if Steve Costigan were the bulldog in the picture, and that he's now depicted as a blonde with a striped shirt. But this is totally badass, I love your art. :)

  5. Well... if I had found this site back when I was putting together the Steve Costigan ebook anthologies for NUELOW Games ("Fists of Foolishness" and "Shanghaied Mitts"), I would have seen if that picture was available in place of one of the covers we DID use. Great stuff.
