Description

For fans of Conan old and new, and a perfect way to discover the adventures of the famous Cimmerian, this is the definitive collection of Marvel's classic 1970s Conan the Barbarian.

Born on a battlefield in the frozen lands of Cimmeria, Conan fights his way through the untamed kingdoms of the Hyborian Age, sparing no man, woman or wizard his wrath. His adventures will become legend and he will become king. Writer Roy Thomas and artist Barry Windsor-Smith brought Robert E. Howard's iconic creation to four-color life with work that set new standards for comic book storytelling. This oversized Omnibus begins an historic series of collections of the original 1970 Conan the Barbarian comic book series with each issue painstakingly restored to match the majesty of the original editions. In these early exploits, a young Conan ventures from his homeland for the first time, honing his skills as a thief, mercenary, pirate and above all, warrior!

About Roy Thomas

ROY THOMAS joined Marvel as a writer and editor under Stan Lee, scripting key runs of nearly every Marvel title: The Amazing Spider-Man, The Avengers, Daredevil, Doctor Strange, The Sub-Mariner, Thor, The X-Men and more. He wrote the first ten years of Marvel's Conan the Barbarian and Savage Sword of Conan; and launched the Defenders, Iron Fist, The Invaders and Warlock. At DC, he developed All-Star Squadron, Infinity Inc. and related titles, proving instrumental in reviving the Golden Age Justice Society of America. He co-scripted the sword-and-sorcery films Fire and Ice and Conan the Destroyer. Throughout it all, Thomas has edited the award-winning magazine Alter Ego, contributing heartily to the research and history of the medium.

A British expat, BARRY WINDSOR-SMITH took American comics by storm in the late '60s. After initial efforts on The X-Men, Daredevil and Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., it was Windsor-Smith's turn on Conan the Barbarian that gave him the platform to showcase his prodigious talent. He also turned in memorable work drawing The Avengers and Doctor Strange in Marvel Premiere, after which the artist started his studio, The Gorblimey Press, producing original stories and art prints. Windsor-Smith returned to Marvel in the 1980s and '90s on Machine Man and various X-Men stories, including "Lifedeath" and the character-defining Wolverine tale, "Weapon X." He also helped launch the Valiant Comics universe, which included his creation Archer & Armstrong, and broke boundaries with his tabloid-format Barry Windsor-Smith: Storyteller series and Eisner Award-winning graphic novel Monsters.
