Authored by former Marvel Comics editor in chief and top writer Roy Thomas, and noted historian Jim Amash, it features the most definitive interview Romita's ever given, about working with such comics legends as Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, following Spider-Man co-creator Steve Ditko as artist on the strip, and more! Plus, Roy Thomas shares memories of working with Romita in the 1960s-70s, and Jim Amash examines the awesome artistry of Ring-a-Ding Romita! Lavishly illustrated with Romita art—original classic art, and unseen masterpieces—as well as illos by some of Marvel's and DC's finest, this is at once a career overview of a comics master, and a firsthand history of the industry by one of its leading artists!
The journey down the legendary Road of Kings is no walk in the park. Being a skilled fighter will only get you so far; you'll also need plenty of gold to keep you going. Luckily, Conan and his companions are skilled at separating the wealthy from their spare treasure! But they'll have to brave monsters, pursuing guards, and the sword-handed Gamesh if they're to reach their final destination. "Dark Horse can do next to no wrong when it comes to handling the Conan franchise. Add Roy Thomas, veteran Conan scribe, and you've pretty much got a formula for a quality barbarian yarn." -Comics Bulletin
