CONAN (1970) (#1-275) (CONAN THE BARBARIAN) (MARVEL) #97 - Plot Synopsis


Conan (1970) #97
"The Long Night of Fang and Talon" is written by Roy Thomas with art by John Buscema and Ernie Chan. Usually Conan is the one rescuing the sacrificial victim tied to some pagan altar, but as our story begins we find our hero in the reverse situation as Ajaga the Beast King of Abombi has the Cimmerian bound and condemned to ritualistic death. With the power to command animals, Ajaga is like a homicidal Tarzan and he uses his magical ability to summon a horde of slithering, flying, gibbering and roaring things to come eat Conan alive.

Fortunately for Conan, Belit and Conan's pet black lion Sholo have broken free of Ajaga's dungeon and make their way to the horrific scene just in time to leap down and stop the ceremony. So sudden and unexpected is Belit's attack that Ajaga loses control of his spell and all of the wild beasts he summoned descend on him instead. With Conan freed and by her side, the pirate-queen Belit leads her Corsairs in a counter-attack against Ajaga's human followers, the Kushites. Victory is theirs but at the cost of noble Sholo's life.
