Conan The Reaver (Graphic Novel/Marvel/1987)
Conan The Reaver (Graphic Novel) Marvel Comics
Don Kraar (w) John Severin (a)
The advent of the original graphic novel led to Marvel producing a run of no less than 75 magazine style editions between the eighties and the nineties of which three featured Conan the Barbarian, one of Marvels big sellers. These tales were pretty average for Conan and did not have the more adult content that one would expect of The Savage Sword of Conan magazine.
Nevertheless this edition is a solid read seeing Conan as King of the Thieves and planning to rob a dying King who figures out Conan is a bit of a rogue, but an honorable one. Promising to save the Kings young wife and her bastard son, Conan gets embroiled in yet another adventure from which he he puts his barbarian honour before profit.
Worth picking up if you can find them and not too expensive.
