Conan (1970) #100
Death of Belit. "Death on the Black Coast" is written by Roy Thomas and drawn by John Buscema and Ernie Chan. Together, Conan and his mate, the pirate queen Belit, have faced undead giants, giant hawkriders, animal priests and Stygian sorcerers. They've sacked town and town and fought for, gained and given back the crown of an empire. Now, in the trackless wastes of the jungles of Kush, up the river called Zahkeba, their fantastic journey together ends in blood and sorcery as ancient as the world itself.
A crumbling, vine-strewn temple at the source of the snake-infested river holds undreamed of treasures, yet it also contains great peril as several of Belit's corsairs die attempting to retrieve its gold and jewels. Then, as Conan separates from his love to fetch fresh water for their journey back to the open seas, Belit and her men are set upon by a demonic winged ape and his hyenas. The lone survivor of the holocaust, there's only Conan left to avenge the lives of his love and her crew against the last remnant of a long-dead race.
