Roy Thomas (Author), John Buscema (Author), Neal Adams (Author) & 0 more. Book 6 of 22 in the Chronicles Of Conan Series. Following on from the dreadful collected vol 5 of this series, vol 6 definitely shows signs of improvement. Thomas continues to write new material or adapts them from other non-Howards sources with mixed results. The first story Hellspawn of Kera Shakr is quite good, a pity then that Bourtai is killed off here. Then there are several tales in which Conan, whilst in the employ of King Yildiz, gets involved with.

Another good collection of stories, including a rare Conan story illustrated by Neal Adams. I really like the way Roy Thomas mined Howard's non-Conan stories for adaptations. Vor kurzem hatte ich The Savage Sword of Conan, Vol. 4 ausgelesen und war übermäßig enttäuscht. Nachdem ich nun "The Curse of the Golden Skull" nocheinmal gelesen habe, weiß ich auch wieder, warum - wenn man das Team Buscema/Chan(Chua) mal in Bestform gesehen hat, kann es danach nur noch Enttäuschungen geben. Und hier sind die beiden in Bestform.

by Roy Thomas, John Buscema & Ernie Chan. Roy is somewhat dismissive of this issue, but I think it actually has quite a bit going for it, albeit perhaps a bit under the radar. For a start, it nicely fills in some of the events cited in a probable outline of Conan’s career, such as Conan schooling himself in various martial skills, such as archery, etc. Steamy stuff.

Reading through the eight illustrated stories within "The Curse Of The Golden Skull", originally stand-alone Marvel comics published in 1974, is like being thrust back in time. Not only to Conan's mythical Hyborian Age of 12,000 years ago, but to a time when a comic could thrill you into staying up past twelve on a school night, reading it over and over for the flourishes of madness, bloodletting, and satiny female thighs.

"I've things to do in this life...and no faith at all in any other," Conan declares in one of the tales here, "Dragon From The Inland Sea", after shaking off death's coils yet another time.

He's a hard guy, alright, but Roy Thomas's steady scripting begins showing signs of discernable humor about the barbarian, as well as stories that rise above the maiden-and-monster formula and lend color and depth to Conan's fantasy world. Whether he's fighting giant alligators or undead wizards, there's something in every story here to give liftoff to the sophisticated imagination, adolescent or otherwise.

That's evident from the first tale here, "The Hell-Spawn Of Kara-Shehr", where Conan and a crafty but greedy thief, Bourtai, discover a lost city where a skeleton on a throne clutches an azure jewel. Whether its artist John Buscema drawing a two-page spread of the city in all its ruined story, or the sly way Thomas has Conan and Bourtai alternately goad each other into exploring further inside, what you get is a winning combination of splashy images and sharp dialogue.

"Kara-Shehr" is one of four issues here adapted from stories by Conan creator Robert E. Howard, though none originally featured the Cimmerian. Sticking Conan in a non-Conan Howard story was a strategy of mixed success for Thomas, but here he does just fine. The last of the issues presented here, "Night Of The Gargoyle," is more remarkable for being a noticeable improvement over Howard's original "Purple Heart Of Erlik", planting Conan in the midst of a reckless jewel theft with supernatural overtones.

While each of the eight issues are stand-alone stories, there is a running narrative of Conan finding himself in the employ of Turan, an empire-building power with which he has had a past. Alas, the wife of a jealous Turanian prince puts an end to that phase of Conan's life, leaving him wandering westward to the thief-ridden nation of Zamora. Alternately sexy, savage, and sneaky, the twists and turns facing Conan keep you riveted with every new page.

There are of course derivative moments - these comics were originally published monthly and within the formula of their genre. In "Beware The Hyrkanians Bearing Gifts", a stone head serves a purpose not unlike another gift of a conquered people in Howard's Conan tale "The God In The Bowl". And Conan runs into not one but two supernatural ladies in a row in "Fiend From The Forgotten City" and "The Garden Of Death And Life". The former of these is the weakest tale here by far, though it's not terrible, just mundane and a bit sloppy at the end.

Mention must be made of Neal Adams, a revered comic artist who worked on the title story in place of Buscema and if anything outdid Big John in capturing both Buscema's dynamism and Barry Smith's exotic lyricism in his pencilwork. One image of a ship's arrival in a mountain-flanked valley port is positively gasp-inducing. Could Adams have kept it up for more than an issue? We'll never know, though Buscema's subsequent, moody work on the spooky "The Warrior And The Were-Woman" makes Adams's loss easier to endure.

Thomas notes in his Afterword that these issues mark the time he "finally got really comfortable with 'Conan The Barbarian'". It's clear that character and setting were clicking with artist and writer alike like never before. I can't wait to keep reading the issues that follow, and believe you'll feel the same after reading Volume 6.

Following on from the dreadful collected vol 5 of this series, vol 6 definitely shows signs of improvement. Thomas continues to write new material or adapts them from other non-Howards sources with mixed results.

The first story Hellspawn of Kera Shakr is quite good, a pity then that Bourtai is killed off here. Then there are several tales in which Conan, whilst in the employ of King Yildiz, gets involved with. The story of Prince Yezdigerd sending his father King Yildiz a golem is also quite interesting as it sets the pattern for Conan and an array of beautiful women in every tale. The follow on tale of the Were woman is even better, with Conan removing Narim-Bey from the scene and then deserting the Turanian army. He encounters a giant crocodile and a woman in Dragon from the Inland Sea, a tree demon in the shape of a woman and yet another woman in Night of the gargoyle.

A lucky sod, Conan appears to encounter more wenches than even casanova. The stories, whilst episodic in nature, are strung together reasonably well with a decent chronology. There is that blandness with having too many women being featured, too much of a good thing. This volume sees Buscema's work being inked by various other inkers and the results are quite good.

This vol is probable my most favorite of the collection that I have (5-8 and 16) Roy Thomas is extrodinaire, his adapation of Robert E Howard's classic hero is right on the money. John Buscema is fantastic, He captures conan like no other artist, as he is described by Howard, and that how I will always envision Conan to look. Buscema does some of his own inking in this vol, I wish he could have done more, check out "The Warrior and the Were-woman". Ernie Chan inks in this vol also, He clicks well with Buscema, Neal Adams draws for one issue, he good too, I would have like to have seen more of his art on the series (I have 7-177 of Conan the Barbarian) He only does a few issues, from what I can recall. I really like what Dark Horse is doing, with the reprinting and digital re-coloring, but why not include the covers? I can't understand that at all, They included the covers when they re-did Marvel's Star Wars. It's a shame, some of them were great, acouple weren't so good, A lot were done excellently by Gil Kane
