Save VS Conan PSA

PSA: Save vs Thomas/BWS Conan

Normally, this feature will deal with specific stories from specific comics- but due to circumstances beyond my control I’m going to make a PSA.
This book, containing BWS entire run and a ton of cool extras, came out earlier this week. It is as cheap as it’s ever going to be right now. Roy Thomas is THE comic book conan writer- no one comes close. BWS is THE Conan artis (right behind John Buscema, I mean). 
I am not affiliated with IST- but I love comics and I want YOU to have comics. It’s what Crom wants too. Sadly, by Crom only the ugly cover remains. That’s how civilized folk are. In Cimmera everyone would have gotten the same cover or none at all!

I’ve also heard that a lack of regular Conan comics is associated with ED. 



Rpg uses- there’s a useable adventure seed in pretty much every issue. We’ll get to a few inthe near future. 
 Edit: This is not a recolor- but it is on white glossy paper- and is a new printing so it will look different than your originals. Pictured below on the left is the DH recolor; to the right is the current omnibus.

  1. Sadly looks like its still the awful computer recoloring from the last time these comics were reprinted.

    1. But they are not recolored. Not even a little. See above, I’ve added a photo. There are news articles about it as well.

    2. Ah, yes! Thanks. The color just still looks crazy bright, but it is definitely not as offensive as that dark horse edition.

    3. Oh, looks they are doing Savage Sword too (full issues!).

    4. Yeah, I am super excited about Savage Sword. I have a bunch og 70’s omnis, you get used to the crazy bright colors. I couldn’t even read the Dark Horse editions.
