Not a classic, by any means. If you want better storytelling and much better art, turn to The Savage Sword of Conan. Still, this is classic Marvel Conan, the sort of stuff a nine-year old swooned over at the local Stars and Stripes Bookstore. Still, this book helped me to become the nerd I am today, and for that, it should be commended. I still have my torn and worn copy on the bookshelf and used it as a tool for introducing my own children to nerd-dom. It seems to have worked.
