Golden Fleece Volume 1 Number 2

The pirate Black Terence Vulmea encounters a cruel British Navy captain who kills his crew, takes him prisoner, and threatens to hang him. Vulmea tempts him with a story of buried treasure. In the course of the search, somewhere in the jungles of South America, Vulmea and the captain encounter hostile savages, escaped slaves, and a giant anaconda. The thrill count is high, as is the body count.

 ‘Black Vulmea’s Vengeance’ is a story in the Black Vulmea series about an Irish pirate sailing the Caribbean. The story features Terence Vulmea, aka Black Vulmea, who was born a 17th-century Irish peasant, and carried his vendetta with the English oppressors of his country to the waters of the Caribbean. He is one of Robert E. Howard’s lesser known characters; more of his exploits were later added by David C. Smith.
