The saga of King Conan continues on this Volume 3 and as a Conan all-time fan this is a must have but be advised: I don't know if this happened only in my copy or if it is a general problem - there are pages in the wrong order. To read the story in the right sequence you must read the pages in the following order: 39->42->41->40->43 or 111->113->112. All in all it's a great book for the fans who want to follow a more mature Conan in his kingdom years!

This is an ok book, only for serious Conan fans, as the art is in many pages bad. You should not get this if you want something well drawn, but it is a fine read !

2.0 out of 5 stars Conan Meets The X-Men 26 April 2013
By Bill Slocum - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The third collection of Marvel's "King Conan" comic book series captures the title soon after the departure of its original writer Roy Thomas and penciller John Buscema. What remains is what you might expect from a team pressed into service by a company specializing in superhero comics.

While one might think becoming the ruler of a mighty land like Aquilonia would mean rest and relaxation for our middle-aged Cimmerian hero, such is not the case. There's a spider-lady with a couple of pumas and a 200-ton Micronaut at her command, a horned beast with an army of green slinky things that live under a cemetery, and a trio of diabolical wizards, all of whom crave Aquilonia because as it turns out there's this giant hollow volcano somewhere in the country where another horned beast feeds souls to a lava beast and creates some reservoir of magic power.

Makes you wonder how Aquilonia managed to survive before Conan got to be its king.

That's the first four of Vol. 3's five issues, originally published in 1982-83. It's all very complicated, and not very Conan. Writer Doug Moench is well-regarded as a writer of superhero comics. Likewise, Mark Silvestri, the most famous name among the many illustrators who stepped in for the absent Buscema, would go on to be one of the main artists for Marvel's "Uncanny X-Men." Reading through these stories, with their endless succession of over-the-top images and situations, one misses the believability that Conan used to enjoy in comic form. Sure, it was fantastically surreal at times, but never like this!

The monsters and magic tangent gets labored quickly, as does the sex. The spider-lady has a tryst with King C, as do a bevy of underdressed maidens sent by a female wizard who's a hottie in her own right. No wonder Queen Zenobia decides to accompany her man on one expedition, dressed in a bikini so skimpy she looks like Lady Godiva on her horse. Turns out she is quite the fighter in her own right, an expert in archery and hand-to-hand combat. She explains it to her husband like this: "I was daughter to a soldier. My father always wanted a boy." Why she tells him now, after all the battles he fought without her help, is a mystery Moench leaves unexplored.

The last of the five stories, "The Looters Of R'Shann," is the one good story in this collection. It's inventive and shows what Moench might have done with King Conan had he laid off the superheroics and kept matters more down to earth. Traveling in disguise so as not to be recognized by his subjects, Conan falls in with a young thief for whom Conan is something of an idol, "perhaps the greatest thief who ever slipped through shadow." For his part, Conan misses his younger days as a carefree cutpurse, and sets out to relive them - until matters of state come calling in an unexpected way. Yes, it also ends with monsters, Abominable Snowmen from the look of them, but at least this time there's something earnest and enjoyable to the struggle.

This would be the last issue Moench would write for "King Conan;" the title would go off in yet another direction for a while. "Vol. 3" has its moments, but on the whole won't leave Conan readers missing Moench the way they did Roy Thomas.
