A collection of 8 comics based on Robert E. Howard's Conan the Barbarian character.
Taking over writing duties on Conan the Barbarian in the early 1980s, Bruce Jones brought his humor and horror sensibilities - as well as his knack for telling great short stories - to the title, invigorating John Buscema, who returned to work on the series with Conan #136. In Chronicles of Conan: Isle of the Dead and Other Stories, these two comic-book titans lead Conan on a thrilling tour of Hyboria - from the monster-infested Bossonian Marshes to the hideous slave markets of Belthem - as Conan encounters strange, supernatural foes, beguiling women, and overconfident rulers.
Bruce Jones, director of the Center for International Cooperation at New York University and a nonresident senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, recently served as deputy research director for the United Nations High-Level Panel on Threats, Challenges, and Change.
