    Description

    Conan the Barbarian CGC Run (Marvel, 1970-1993) CGC NM+ 9.6 and NM/MT 9.8. Two-thirds of the title's long run is included here, and every issue is certified 9.6 or 9.8! The first sword-and-sorcery comic series is now being hailed as a classic. Exceptional art by Barry Smith started off the run, and John Buscema took over from there, doing perhaps the best work of his distinguished career (with Gil Kane contributing spectacular cover art more often than not). Writer Roy Thomas captured the essence of the character perfectly, adapted quite a few of Robert E. Howard's original stories along the way, and even created Red Sonja, who debuted in #23 and whose popularity came to approach that of Conan himself. The fact that Conan comics are now being published again to great acclaim means that even more collectors are seeking out Marvel's original series. Included here are #1-11, 15, 17, 21, 23, 24, 26-28, 30-40, 43, 45, 47-48, 50-55, 58-66, 69-70, 72, 75-76, 78-80, 84-86, 88-92, 96-97, 99-102, 104-106, 110-113, 115-151, 153-162, 164-175, 177-184, 186, 189-193, 196-198, 201, 207, 208-210, 214-215, 217, 223, 229, 231, 236, 238, 243, 252-253, 256, 258-260, 262-268, 270, 272-274, and Annuals 3-11. A whopping fifty-four of these are certified 9.8 (#55 is the earliest 9.8 issue). The vast majority is certified with White pages. A handful of these are pedigree copies, with the Don Rosa Collection and the Winnipeg, Northland, and Mile High II pedigrees all represented. Since almost every key issue is included here, this represents an amazing opportunity to acquire a high-grade collection of this sought-after series with one bid! Overstreet 2006 NM- 9.2 value for group = $1,964.
