The The Shadow in the Tomb and Other Stories wiki last edited by kuonphobos on 04/09/14 11:11PM View full history

The return of Conan is at hand. By the mid 1970s, Robert E Howard’s seminal Sword and Sorcery hero had cut a path through the comic-book world, restored to vivid life by prolific writer Roy Thomas and his host of talented artists. Of those artists, none contributed more to Conan’s legacy than the legendary John Buscema. Taking the lush and detailed realism that had already been established in the comic-book series, Buscema pushed the look of Howard’s creation in an entirely new direction, illustrating what would become the definitive version of Conan for an entire generation of readers. Collecting issues #27-#33 of Marvel’s Conan the Barbarian series.

Look for the Conan franchise to come back with a vengeance with the release of classic and new fiction, action figures, a multi-platform electronic game, and a major motion picture!

Featuring completely remastered color.
