SAVAGE SWORD OF CONAN, the cornerstone of Marvel's black-and-white magazine line, offered up stories of fiction's most famous barbarian unencumbered by the Comics Code. With the rules of civilized publishing cast off , SAVAGE SWORD presented ferocious, untamed tales the likes of which Conan himself would approve. Writer Roy Thomas and artistic greats, including John Buscema and Neal Adams, took full advantage, and the results were a sensation. Multipart sagas like "The People of the Black Circle" luxuriate in extended tellings, while a Buscema take on "The Tower of the Elephant" explores the nuance of an all-time Robert E. Howard classic. And we're topping it off with MARVEL COMICS SUPER SPECIAL #2, a tale of vengeance lavished with fully painted coloring.

Marvel proudly presents TIMELY'S GREATEST, a series of once-in-a-lifetime volumes presenting the greatest stories of the Golden Age, when Marvel was known as Timely Comics! Joe Simon and Jack Kirby entered the comic book field separately, and undoubtedly would have made major impacts on their own - but when their talents came together, it wasn't an impact, it was an earthquake. The Simon & Kirby team immediately became synonymous with innovative storytelling, powerful artwork and hit characters. They would birth some of the 1940s' most enduring creations, including the embodiment of a nation's fighting spirit: Captain America! This Omnibus collects Simon & Kirby's Timely Comics stories and covers, from the Vision to the Fiery Mask - and the rare Red Raven!
