Conan Gets Down by Neal Adams

 This is another example of my poor research skills and memory.  I love Robert E. Howard, and have all the Frazetta paperbacks, but I cannae recall which story begins (I think) with Conan "left for dead" and surviving by sheer tenacity and brute force


  1. Great piece, Cap'n!!
    The story you're looking for is "A Witch Shall Be Born" from Weird Tales December 1934.
    However, in the story Conan is unable to free himself as is shown in Mr. Adams art.
    Thanks again for all you do!!

    1. Ah, thank you so much! Now I know why I've read it but cannae re-read it. That story was printed by Lancer in Conan The Freebooter, which does NOT have a Frazetta cover, so it did not linger on my bookshelves for all eternity like the other Conan paperbacks
