    1. Not a classic, by any means. If you want better storytelling and much better art, turn to The Savage Sword of Conan. Still, this is classic Marvel Conan, the sort of stuff a nine-year old swooned over at the local Stars and Stripes Bookstore. Still, this book helped me to become the nerd I am today, and for that, it should be commended. I still have my torn and worn copy on the bookshelf and used it as a tool for introducing my own children to nerd-dom. It seems to have worked.


    2. I decided to read this series because I have always enjoyed the character's adventures. I wasn't alive when these comics came out in 1970. I discovered the stories in the mid 80s at local comic book stores I would frequent. These first three stories seem to set the tone for the rest of the stories. Not just in the way it is narrated, but the look, the art. They are based on the stories by Robert E.

    3. Every artist has his starting point where his art start to move towards the brilliance it one day will be. First thing that struck me when I re-read these was the clumsyness of Windsor-Smith art and the silly helmet Conan wears.And after re-reading I remember, why I had forgotten the stories also. They are boring. Maybe Thomas was also getting to know the character here.


    4. Great, classic sword and sorcery! Cool, "retro" artwork and excellent mixture of the lore of the world that Howard created and Stan Lee and the creative geniuses at Marvel turned into some great comic book work!


    5. A collection of Conan comic strips. They're OK, nothing particularly to write home about. I give this one 3 stars since it's the first of three collections that I know about.
