The majestic art of the legendary black-and-white magazine, The Savage Sword of Conan, is represented in a deluxe hardcover art book worthy of Crom himself! With the massive success of the Hyborian warrior in Marvel's line of color comics and a short run in the seminal black-and-white mag Savage Tales, the decision was made to spin Conan off into his own magazine, the better to capture the bone-crushing action of the barbarian's world. Stripped to just its pencil-and-inks essentials, Conan took on a new savagery drawn by masters such as Barry Windsor-Smith, John Buscema and Ernie Chan. The story of Savage Sword isn't solely about the black-and-white interiors, though. The series' fully painted covers were worth the cover price themselves, with gorgeous illustrations by Boris Vallejo, Michael Kaluta, Earl Norem and many others, while the many hidden gems to be found among the pinups and spot illustrations in the magazine's interiors are waiting to be rediscovered by Conan fans. With 235 issues in its epic history, there is no shortage of mind-blowing Savage Sword art - and this deluxe hardcover shares the best of it!
