Description

For the first time, Robert E. Howard’s Conan is brought to life uncensored! Discover the true Conan, unrestrained, violent, and sexual. Two complete stories, Queen of the Black Coast, and Red Nails — includes both REH’s complete prose stories plus the comic book adaptions and bonus material, including a host of variant covers. Nudity, adult situations. In Queen, Conan seeks refuge on a merchant ship, pursued for killing a judge. But he faces a threat: the legendary Belit, Queen of the Black Coast! In Red Nails, he and Valeria fight side by side as mercenaries, then discover a hidden city and new danger.

These are two of the most legendary of the Conan adventures, wonderful novellas. First you can read the new comics story of each, then read the original prose story just as Howard wrote it back in the 1930s. The prose story adds more depth and detail, but they nicely complement one another. And in each, he meets one of the famous women of his life.

More on Belit: Soon finding himself smitten by the lovely Belit, Conan agrees to joins up with her and her crew to brutally pillage and sail the poisonous river Zarkheba, encountering ancient ruins, lost treasure, and winged, vicious monstrosities!

In Red Nails, Conan finds himself in the Darfar region, whose territory is almost entirely covered by a huge forest. Here Conan pledges himself a mercenary, promising his sword to the highest bidder, fighting alongside fellow mercenary and fierce female warrior Valeria. After a clash against a terrible dragon, the two go to a strange fortified city, apparently deserted…but the duo will quickly discover that a civilization lives hidden inside, and that the citadel hides a heavy secret.

This was first published as a French graphic album in 2019. This first U.S. edition includes sketches, five pages of character drawings and full page, uncolored drawings by Pierre Alary for Queen, and another five pages of sketches by Cassegrain for Red Nails. And from the American comic book series for this, we have 29 different regular and variant covers, many as close to nude as any Dejah Thoris piece, by the likes of Elias Chatzoudis, Mirka Andolfo, Sunghan Yune, Lucio Parillo, Mike Rooth and both of the primary artists. And others!
