By Crom that is a nice collection. Truman's King Conan was a great read.

Sigh, why didn't I read that post before? :pullhair:

Then I could have stopped myself from buying all this firewood :frustrated:

Luckily I got the Ka-Zar mags too :devil: - maybe they're still worth something hm :wishluck:

To top off my misguidedress I even bought some Conan art :ohnoez:

Maybe it's just me, but I've read tons of comics and, by Mitra, none were better than the good ol' Conan books and mags :sumo:

I'll probably use it all for my Viking funeral :grin:

fantastic collection!

Ignore FT88's comments. 

The one character I have always been able to rely on for great reading is Conan. Every other comic or magazine character has some lame story arc that did not grab me.

Agree 100% - Conan is usually very reliable for a good read. I recently completed a 2nd raw run (low grade lol) and am re-reading the series from the beginning. If you haven't read them recently, you should do so - not many series can match these stories.

I think what makes Conan successful is that he is always the same character: he is consistent whether he is a youth, a grown man, a King or involved in something more fantastic like being transported to the future and dueling Captain America.

I picked up the trades to read.

+ 1

I have the 1st 10 Dark Horse trades but I don't like the coloring in them so the :insane: person in me decided to pick up a 2nd run to read. Something about holding and smelling an old comic as opposed to a trade. For about $350.00 I picked up every Conan the Barbarian, King Conan, all the annuals plus most of the Red Sonja and King Kull books. When my ASM run is complete I will be starting a Conan run - I will try and do 1-50 in 9.8 :wishluck:

Some great writing on the original Marvel series by Roy Thomas of course and then later writers including one of my favorites J.M. DeMatteis (#118-130)(1981-1982).  Paul~

It was used as a pin-up in a Savage Tales.

Savage Tales #3, February 1974 issue. Since the Savage Tales is from 1974, and the Detroit con book is from 1973 it may have been the first time the image was used.

Here is the original art:

Wow...on the same day you were posting this image, I was at the owner's home admiring this piece in person! :applause:

I know this thread is for comics and related items, but I have got to say this is a fantastic statue/ diorama. By Crom I want!
