Young Fafhrd vs. the Midgard Serpent

"Young Fafhrd vs. the Midgard Serpent" from Sword of Sorcery vol.1 #4 (DC, 1973) by Denny O'Neil and Walt Simonson
When the New52 came out with a Sword of Sorcery, I thought the name was really peculiar (why not Sword AND Sorcery, for example), but it's an old DC title! For five whole issues, comics greats-in-becoming like Denny O'Neil, Walt Simonson and Howard Chaykin lent their pens to new adventures for Fritz Leiber's popular fantasy anti-heroes, Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser. No Young Mouser tales as far as I know though.
