Sword of Sorcery was one of DC Comics's responses to Marvel's successful
Conan book. It featured a pair of characters called Fafhrd -
a big, brawny, redheaded warrior - and the Gray Mouser, a smaller, catlike thief. The two were characters created by writer Fritz Leiber,
who traveled around a fantasy world similar to Conan's, and survived by their wits more than their swords. As in Leiber's short stories,
the pair's adventures were a satisfying blend of the sword-and-sorcery genre with lighthearted adventure. Denny O'Neil scripted the
comics stories, modeled after the short stories, with nice art by Howard Chaykin and Jim Starlin.
The series might have been a bit ahead of its time, however, because it lasted only five issues.
