Hey, hey, hey, Groove-ophiles! Here's another multi-faceted gem of a Conan tale, mined from the pages of Marvel Treasury Edition #15 (May 1977). "Night of the Dark God", adapted by Roy Thomas from the REH tale "The Dark Man" is one of those epic Conan stories that just hit Teen Groove where he lived. There are scenes in it that still stick in my mind to this day. Of course, a huge part of that memory is due to the oh-so-gorgeous pencils by Gil Kane, inked by several of the industry's best (Neal Adams, Pablo Marcos, Vinnie Colletta, and (uncredited on the title page) Frank McLaughlin. Yes, this was a reprint from Marvel's black and white Savage Tales #4 (March 1974), but not only did we get to read "Night..." in that gargantuan tabloid size, but it was also in color, baby! Check it out!
