"Young d'Artagnan has only one ambition - to be a king's musketeer some day. With these dreams, he reaches Paris. Monsieur de Treville makes him a member of the king's guards, and promises that if he proves his worth he can become a musketeer one day. In Paris, d'Artagnan befriends Athos, Porthos, and Aramis, the three musketeers; and also falls in love with the beautiful Constance Bonacieux, Queen Anne's linen maid. But little does he know that Queen Anne would soon fall into trouble with her husband, King Louise XIII, because of her secret lover - which is what the cardinal wants. With Constance begging him to help, and the wicked cardinal and his men chasing him, will d'Artagnan be able to save the queen's honour? Will he ever fulfill his dream of being a musketeer?"

Taking over writing duties on Conan the Barbarian in the early 1980s, Bruce Jones brought his humor and horror sensibilities as well as his knack for telling great short stories to the title, invigorating John Buscema, who returned to work on the series with Conan #136. In The Chronicles of Conan: Isle of the Dead and Other Stories, these two comicbook titans lead Conan on a thrilling tour of Hyboria from the monsterinfested Bossonian Marshes to the hideous slave markets of Belthem as Conan encounters strange, supernatural foes, beguiling women, and overconfident rulers. * Stories like "The River of Death," "Titan's Gambit," and the twopart "Spider Isle" adventure are meticulously restored and recolored, and Jones and Buscema are joined by such talents as Ernie Chan, Mark Silvestri, Val Mayerik, Alfredo Alcala, and others. * This volume collects Conan the Barbarian issues #135 to #142, including all original series covers.
