Hawkmoon, The Jewel in the Skull #1: Part One of Four
Download Hawkmoon, The Jewel in the Skull #1
Dorian Hawkmoon, Duke of Köln is one of the fictional characters created by Michael Moorcock in his series of the Eternal Champion books. Hawkmoon is one of the less "problematic" characters Moorcock ever created a series around. Unlike the anti-hero Elric of Melniboné, or the alienated and tragic Corum, or the sometimes savage Erekosë, Hawkmoon is described as being very much close to an all-around "good guy," despite lacking some subtlety (or perhaps, for this very reason).
Hawkmoon is captured by the evil forces of Granbretan who implant, by means of arcane, baroque technology (devised by a caste of 'sorcerer-scientists'), a sinister black jewel in his skull.
