Conan has lived many lives in comics, from a young barbarian to a grizzled old king. Those lives are split into two distinct periods of Conan comics with distinctly different story continuity.
His first life in comics was at Marvel from 1970 through 2000, largely under the pen of veteran Roy Thomas in his long-running series Conan the Barbarian.
Then, in 2003, Conan comics made the jump to Dark Horse – initially under the pen of Kurt Busiek. Dark Horse launched his book with reverence, assuring fans that they would present adaptations of Robert E. Howard’s original work and its implied connective tissue – nothing more.
Directly below are the contents of those two periods.
Marvel’s contents are listed as an alphabetical index by title, since they published many series outside of the spine of Barbarian and King Conan, though the content of the page is chronological by series.
Dark Horse’s contents are listed and presented chronologically in the order the series have been presented. [Read more…] about Definitive Conan Comics Collecting Guide and Reading Order
