Ion of comics readers and now those stories are collected in this series Featuring completely remastered color and text corrections and containing material not available for nearly thirty year As a kid I had a few of the Conan magazines but never any of the marvel comics run This book was my chance to check them out now as an adult Being a marvel fan but also a fan of Roy Thomas's work as editor at marvel it seemed like a good way for me to enjoy ConanThe art Is good in this book and Barry Windsor Smith looks to be having a lot of fun here The whole run in this volume is his which is nice Conan does not have the bangs that I prefer him with but he does have a peculiar helm with two horns coming straight off the front that I find endearing Also do to the time it was drawn he is not overly inflated when it comes to his physiue I enjoy this as it makes the visuals a bit life like and helped me get sucked into the story The coloring for this volume was completely redone and is super clean and pretty well handled There is a bit too much dithering and I don't think the art needed the 3D uality emphasized as muchThe stories Are very fun You don't get much in the way of character development but you do get a sense of adventure and bewilderment This series perfectly delivered in what it sought out to do which is entertain There are ancient cities and peoples lost to time only to be rediscovered by our hero and evil wizards who need to be stopped The solutions are often found via the end of a blade and the structure is a bit prone to formula but these don't manage to work against it for me It is not a something for everyone style of story telling even thought the great visuals really help deliver you into this world One thing I really enjoy is how we get some information about long lost cities or societies but not everything it lets the readers mind float around these places and fill in he gaps while raising fun uestionsOverall this is simple but very fun story telling that is perfectly suited to the comic book format
