DeMatteis (Justice League, Spider-Man, Moonshadow) found himself fit for the job when he became Conan the Barbarian’s next regular writer with Conan #118! This volume continues the period when DeMatteis worked with legendary artist John Buscema, collecting five of their regular series issues, as well as Conan Annuals 4 and 5, which were created by Roy Thomas, John Buscema, and Ernie Chan! Enjoy the continuing story lines, growing cast of characters, and increasingly strange sorcerers and monsters in the regular series segments, while getting a look at an older Conan’s fight for his throne and queen in the unbeatable Thomas/Buscema/Chan Conan Annual collaborations: “The Return of the Conqueror” and “Bride of the Conqueror”! Since rekindling the Conan franchise in 2004, sales of Dark Horse Conan books are over one-quarter of a million copies! Volume 16 features a foreword by J.M. DeMatteis and an afterword by Roy Thomas! Features a portion of J.M. DeMatteis’s first year as a regular writer on Conan and two riveting Conan Annual stories written by Roy Thomas! Beautifully remastered in breathtaking new color!
