Instead, they are loose adaptions of key tales, inserting connective tissue between them. They are also mostly one-shot stories — even when they begin to continue more directly from the end of the previous story, each issue tends to be self-contained with a definitive end. What is Conan really about? Conan is a Cimmerian, a people known for their barbarism, but he has thrown in against the Vanir in a regional conflict between different tribes of men.
The comic follows his adventures, sometimes as a soldier, sometimes as a mercenary, and often simply as a wanderer encountering all of the brutality of the fiefdoms in his region. These early Conan stories were written entirely by Roy Thomas, and they have a relatively set formula.
Issues tend to open in the midst of conflict, or with Conan wading into a trap. Conan is frequently too stubborn to retreat once gaining the upper hand, determined to continue until he slays the big bad or burns down an entire city, tower, or dungeon. Beasts tend to be singular and not too fantastical — just giant-sized or semi-sentient versions of things like apes, lizards, or spiders.
Over the course of the issues Conan begins to develop a personality and a moral code that makes him less of an anonymous warrior for continuing readers. Yet, this is still meant as an anthology-style pulp story, which explains the repetitiveness of some of the story beats. Conan The Barbarian is not a comic meant for binge-reading. What really distinguishes this run is that the majority of it is illustrated with fantastic detail by then newcomer Barry Windsor-Smith and a set of fantastical colors from Windsor-Smith and Mimi Gold.
Unfortunately, reprints of this run have used a heavier hand on color correction, erasing the bold presentation of the original issues in favor of a muddier, modern take on the colors. The majority of voters are likely wishing for a faithful restoration of the original, rather than a digital remaster. Will we see this omnibus in ?
Maybe, but not in the way we think of a Marvel Omnibus. Well, the thing is… we already have. Basically, voters want The Colossal Conan The Barbarian Volume 1 , which Dark Horse could follow with an additional four or five volumes to collect the entire series if interest persisted — although, that would be hard to gauge given the added punch of this volume collecting all of the BWS material.
