Now Savage Sword Of Conan Gets an Omnibus in 2019 From Marvel

We already knew there was Conan The Barbarian: The Original Marvel Years Omnibus Vol. 1 coming in January, reprinting Conan The Barbarian #1-26; Chamber Of Darkness #4 and Savage Tales #1 and #4.

But naturally there’s more. And I don’t mean a Vol 2.

First, we have the John Cassaday cover for the Omnibus.

And we have more collections from Marvel for Conan in 2019…

Conan Chronicles Epic Collection: The Heart Of Yag-Kosha originally published by Dark Horse Comics by Kurt Busiek, Mike Mignola, Timothy Truman, Cary Nord, Greg Ruth, Tim Truman, Eric Powell. April 16th, 2019 $39.99 504 pages.

The Tower of the Elephant and other stories! Conan the Barbarian stars in more legendary tales filled with swords, sorcery, giant spiders and monstrous creatures – including stories adapted from the original works of Robert E. Howard! Stealing the priceless gem the Heart of the Elephant from an unguarded tower seems like child’s play -but nothing’s ever easy for Conan! Then, a dalliance with a magistrate’s wife spells trouble, and Conan’s adventures in the City of Thieves continue as he runs a gauntlet of threats both human and inhuman! But what grotesque horrors await him in the Hall of the Dead? And is anybody ready for Conan…the King? Plus, tales of Conan’s youth as he braves the Battle of Brita’s Vale -and rides a wild Cimmerian bull!
