    ROBERT E. HOWARD, ROY THOMAS, & JOHN BUSCEMA THE BEST TRIO EVER!!!

    I thoroughly enjoy all of REH stories as he's the best there is. Pertaining to comics, I believe that writer Roy Thomas and artist Big John Buscema were the absolute best combination in telling REH stories with passion, heart, soul, and creativity in keeping REH's legacy alive and well. In addition, these two great men worked on Savage Sword of Conan, King Conan, Conan Saga, Conan, and Red Sonja. Anytime I could obtain a comic or Marvel magazine with these two greats working on REH stories it was like striking gold!! Now we fans can read these stories in the Chronicles of Conan and Red Sonja trades with extra comments, remarks, and editorial insight. I'm trying to get them all. There were many other good writers and artists but I believe these two guy were the "cream of the crop". Enjoy! See Dark Horse comics for Conan, Kull, and Solomon Kane for great comic reading!!

    MORE 70'S CLASSICS!

    The Chronicles of Conan Volume 7 is a special volume for me. It collects issues # 43 - 51 of the Conan the Barbarian comic from Marvel Comics which is the exact time I first started reading Conan some 32 years ago. I probably haven't read these since first buying them way back then but it's amazing how much I still remember about the stories all these years later. The stories are by Roy Thomas (although adapted from other writers, notably Gardner Fox) with art by penciller John Buscema and a host of inkers included Ernie Chua, Dick Giordano, Joe Sinnott, and The Crusty Bunkers...which was Neal Adams or some of his prot?g?s. The color has been re-mastered and anyone who complains about this fact obviously never saw, or has forgotten just how drab the pixilated color looked on old newsprint. The re-mastered, lush coloring is gorgeous and is a major attraction of the reprint. In the first, two issue story arc, Conan and Red Sonja find themselves on the run from a band of bounty hunters and enter a mysterious valley enshrouded by red fog. They find a tower but soon find themselves dazed and pass out. They are prisoners of brother and sister sorcerers Morophla and Uathacht. The pair were cursed by Stygian wizard Thoth Amon, and now live as vampires, feeding off the blood of others to survive. Rather than hunt, they have a herd of human cattle to feed on but over the years these have degenerated into loathsome life forms, barely able to sustain the blood-suckers. They now plan to use Conan and Sonja to mate with the savages to revitalize them. The story 'Curse of the Conjurer' is freely adapted from the Gardner F. Fox Kothar novel called 'Kothar and the Conjurer's Curse'. Now this is an odd dynamic. Kothar is obviously Fox's version of Conan, written in 1970 just as the Conan comic debuted...and now here's Roy Thomas taking a Kothar story and turning it into a Conan story with little changed. Conan is hired by a mage to deliver a mystical amulet to the Regent of Phalkar. Along the way he finds a woman about to be killed by a mob after she is accused of being a witch. Conan rescues Stefanya, and she takes him on a detour to get back to her master, the wizard Zoqquanor. Zaqquanor is found dead and she insists they take his body with them to Phalkar. Along the way Conan faces numerous challenges such as the guards who kidnap Stefanya and tie Conan to the ground to be devoured by rats. Then there is that Lovecraftian Monstrosity that rises out of the pool to try and devour Conan, before finally facing the demon-spawned Unos. Both stories are solid and show Conan at his brawling, sword-wielding best. As always, the other treat to these books are the recollections by Roy Thomas who comments on the various stories and how they were developed. Another outstanding collection from Dark Horse!
