Book Haul/Spotlight – The Savage Sword of Conan the Barbarian #4 and #5

 

 

 

 

Went to a local comic book store with my son the other day and ended up finding these two great books. I have been wanting to collect more of these awesome magazines but don’t run into them that often. I was especially excited for issue #5, this is one of my favorite covers ever! So glad I found a copy.

I always forget how awesome these are until I find some. Really need to collect some more. Hope I find some more soon.

Today we have:

The Savage Sword of Conan the Barbarian #4 and #5 (1974)

    Savage Sword was my introduction to Howard and Conan. I remember begging my mother for a dollar so I could buy the first issue from the magazine stand in the local supermarket back in 1974. I was 8 years old. It changed my life in a lot of ways.
