The Book

 
Return to an age undreamed of — witness kingdoms shining like never before, and voyage with a black-haired, sullen-eyed reaver with mirths and melancholies that have literally never been this big! Pulled from throughout the original legendary run of CONAN comics and magazines, gathered into one place for the first time ever, timeless works by the greatest chroniclers of the Hyborian Age are assembled in CONAN THE BARBARIAN - COLOSSAL EDITION!

Boasting more than 190 pages of original art reproduced at their original size, allowing every detail to sing — every muscle, every sword, every drop of blood and bead of sweat — the book presents glorious full-color reproductions of the original art, from inked lineart to beautiful gray washes, and even vivid paintings from the Cimmerian’s comic book adventures.
 
Art this good needs a worthy presentation — and master designer IAN CHALGREN (as seen on Cartoon Kayfabe) pulled out all the stops, with brand-new text pieces by writer, editor, and comics historian CHRIS RYALL (Mighty Marvel Calendar Book: A Visual History), and an original introduction by ROY THOMAS, unparalleled scribe of these timeless tales of the world’s most popular barbarian.

CONAN THE BARBARIAN - COLOSSAL EDITION is divided into three sections; the first three each shine a torchlight on the work of one of the greatest sword-and-sorcery artists of all time: JOHN BUSCEMA, GIL KANE, and BARRY WINDSOR-SMITH. Each section pulls pages from the decades of incomparable artistry that filled the pages of CONAN THE BARBARIAN, KING CONAN, THE SAVAGE SWORD OF CONAN, GIANT-SIZE CONAN, SAVAGE TALES, WHAT IF, CONAN THE BARBARIAN MOVIE SPECIAL, and more!
 
Each artist’s section is presented in chronological order, so you can see how their individual approaches changed over the course of decades, all bracketing the centerpiece of this collection — the complete story “DEVIL-WINGS OVER SHADIZAR” from CONAN THE BARBARIAN #6 by ROY THOMAS, BARRY WINDSOR-SMITH, and SAL BUSCEMA, with every page presented in full incredible detail.
 
The book concludes with an extended section of key pages by other incredible artists — some regularly associated with CONAN and some thrilling surprises, including: ART ADAMS, NEAL ADAMS, ALFREDO ALCALA, ENRIQUE ALCATENA, ERNIE CHAN, HOWARD CHAYKIN, JOE CHOIDO, TIM CONRAD, GEOF ISHERWOOD, GARY KWAPISZ, JIM LEE, ESTEBAN MAROTO, JOHN MCCREA, RUDY NEBRES, ALEX NINO, KEVIN NOWLAN, TONY SALMONS, BILL SIENKIEWICZ, ALEX TOTH, and JORGE ZAFFINO.

In collaboration with Zoop, we present three special covers by JIM LEE, BARRY WINDSOR-SMITH and JOHN BUSCEMA (a wraparound cover), with a limited amount signed by the legendary ROY THOMAS!
 
Finally, some important details:
 

• This book will be printed and packaged with the same printer as all Artist’s Editions and at the highest quality that comic art fans have come to expect.

 

• This book is only getting one printing, and this campaign is the best way to get it, whether you be a fan or comic retailer. It will not be re-printed. So THIS IS IT, your one chance to add this prestigious book to your coffee table!

Timeline

The finishing touches are being made on the book design, and it will be going to the printer within one month of the end of the campaign. Expected delivery time to our fulfillment center is roughly four months from approve-to-print date, so we're planning on a Spring 2024 fulfillment.

 

Zoop will keep supporters updated throughout this printing and fulfillment process.

Frequently asked questions

Yes! We encourage you to get more than 1 item! That could be multiple copies of the same reward, or you can mix and match rewards! There is no limit, unless otherwise stated in the reward description.

Our campaigns are for a worldwide audience unless stated otherwise in the campaign. All international orders are sold with the terms DAP (Delivered At Place). You are responsible for any duties and taxes required for the shipment's entry into your country. Our carriers may require you to pay taxes and fees related to importation and customs brokerage of your shipment -- but if your item is really low in value, it may fall under the customs de minimis of most countries. For more information, please contact USPS

Zoop does not store or keep your credit card info. Stripe simply holds the credit card info until the end of a successful campaign and then charges it. It is strictly for this one time use and won't charge it ever again.

You can either access the transaction through your account and click the cancel button, or contact us at hello@wearezoop.com and we'll cancel it for you and send back a confirmation email.

 

Cancellations of rewards or add-ons of $500 or more must be made before there are 72 hours left in the campaign. The reason for this is it can have a negative effect on the tally of the campaign. If it is a limited reward or add-on, there may not be sufficient time for someone else to purchase it, leaving the campaign possibly not funded. We ask for your courtesy of the people running the campaign when making these decisions.

Please use the notes section in the last checkout step or you could e-mail us at hello@wearezoop.com with that info during the campaign if you'd like to get it out of the way. Otherwise, we'll be reaching out to all supporters of rewards that require feedback shortly after the campaign is over.

If you want to make changes, you should first cancel your original order and then start over with a new one. If you don't do that and simply process an additional order, the way our system is currently set up you may end up being overcharged for shipping -- which we could remedy for you, but it just takes that extra step of catching it and crediting you back the extra shipping, so please try the prior way first.

Rewards are the priority items that the creators have chosen for the campaign. Add-Ons are meant to be secondary items that are 'unlocked' after you buy something from the Reward level. There are no restrictions on buying Rewards, but you can only buy Add-Ons if you've bought a Reward. Zoop sets this up under the direction of the creators. Some may choose to only have Rewards, some may choose an even balance of Rewards and Add-Ons, and others may choose to only have one or two Rewards with the rest of the items being Add-Ons.

Since we have an a la carte rewards system, shipping rates will vary from supporter to supporter. We use a weight-based calculation system in your checkout cart, though, so, after you enter your country, you'll be able to see it calculated in real time with each item you add.

No - this is it! We're essentially your in-campaign pledge manager. If you are interested in supporting these creators, this is the time to do it!  And it's the exact reason we allow you to purchase as many rewards as you want during the campaign!
