Really well presenting copy.  Congrats.  Loaded an alternate copy of the image just in case the forum owners have issues with the image.

 

Thanks! Never thought of that, so I made the switch.

Not a high grade copy, but I'm in the club.  And I've got a hunch it's going to get quite a bit harder to join over the next year as the character returns to Marvel:

Had to go back 5 months to find this thread.  Needed Sherman and Peabody to do it!

If you're stalking me, you'll know I had a nice 9.4, that I had to sell to pay bills.  Found a nice book that I felt was a "shot 9.0" and sent it off to CGC only to be bitterly disappointed.  So I'm selling it at a fire sale price on a very popular auction site that charges too much and I just found this one for a fair price.  Not a 9.4, but a good start to a nicer set of Conans that I'm planning on putting together.  Still trying to figure out exactly what my focus will be for a Conan set...I plan for it to be a relatively short set in higher grade like my Xmen set (which by the grace of God I still have).

Nice copies, folks.  Despite today's overly PC climate, I'm hoping this genre picks up again.  Some great stories here.

What i find interesting is that today, as an adult, I have trouble relating to a lot of comics because they are too juvenile or too busy or both.  But Conan stories appeal to the adult me.

Never thought the day would come when this guy would pass Spidey in my collecting world but I have been reading Conan from issue 1 onward and I'm in :x all over again. It doesn't get much better than Roy writing and Big John drawing (especially in SSOC)

You're telling me! I just swore at my TV and it scolded me for my language lol  I kept saying Avengers End Game and it kept coming up Avengers and game. CROM!

I agree about the stories.  I just started rereading some comics, and I was bouncing between the first Conan issues and Wolverine's own series from the 80's.  And the more I read them both, the more I realized I enjoyed Conan more.  I always thought I liked Wolverine more than Conan, but when I read them back-to-back, I find I'd rather read the Conan stories.
