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)
