This is a very nice book.

It's leather bound, had a cloth ribbon book marker, and very nice quality paper was used for the pages inside. The cover also has some etched designs, and a graphic of Conan charging headlong thru some snow.

This book contains the first 10 Marvel Conan the Barbarian comics. The coloring has been remastered, or redone, to awesome effect.

The real draw here would be the art of Barry Windsor-Smith. The art is excellent, with great attention to detail, especially as the book progresses.

The stories are decent too, with some adaptions of REH tales (Rogues in the House, The Tower of the Elephant), and some other pastiches based on various other REH tales or poems.

There is a lengthy forward by Roy Thomas that details where he got the ideas for each tale from. ( )
