CONAN (1970) (#1-275) (CONAN THE BARBARIAN) (MARVEL) #17 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Conan (1970) #17
"The Gods of Bal-Sagoth" is written by Roy Thomas with art by Gil Kane and Ralph Reese. Adapted from Robert E. Howard's original story. Our story begins with Conan taking on the entire crew of a Turanian pirate ship by himself. Inevitably, he falls and is brought before the captain of the international crew, a red-haired Vanir giant named Fafnir who once thieved side-by-side with the legendary Blackrat (an homage to Fritz Lieber's Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser - see DC's Sword of Sorcery). Fafnir scarcely has time to decide Conan's fate before the white mists of lost Bal-Sagoth cause the ship to wreck, killing all in the crew save Conan and Fafnir.

Washing ashore on the far side of Bal-Sagoth, the pair immediately resumes their fight and finds themselves equally matched. They might have fought on for days if not for the distraction of a crimson-haired beauty running from the woods pursued by a giant lizard. Conan and Fafnir slay the beast and rescue the girl and quite unwittingly find themselves in the middle of an ancient prophecy and a bloody battle for the throne of Bal-Sagoth. As the struggle for the city's throne begins, can Conan survive against the sorcery that spawned the armored champion Vertorix?
