Conan the Barbarian

 COTB   (Marvel, 1970-1993)

™ and ©1979 Conan Properties, Inc.

Known variously as “Conan of Cimmeria,” “Amra” (the Lion), or merely “Conan,” his sword and skills are the stuff of legends. In his adventures he has fought gods and devils, monsters and men. He has led armies and sailed the seas as a pirate captain. He has fought with, and beside, the legendary Kull and the beautiful Red Sonja. In the end, he became King Conan, as he always knew he would.

Created by Robert E. Howard, Conan the Barbarian is perhaps the best-known and best-loved sword and sorcery character of all time.
