Thousands of years before the dawn of Conan, barbarian tribes rose across the Thurian continent, threatening the civilizations whose crumbling city walls still stood against them. In this ruthless age, there rose a man—an exile, no less—who would come to rule mighty Atlantis in the years before it crashed beneath the waves. This man was Kull and a host of Marvel's greatest talents would chronicle his saga—his exile and savage youth; his exploits on the high seas; his rise through the gladiatorial pits and military ranks; his reign as king; and his epic battles with the skull-faced sorcerer Thulsa Doom. 

Experience Kull's complete black-and-white magazine tales in this Omnibus volume, all painstakingly restored from the highest fidelity materials in Marvel's archives. 

Collecting material from KULL AND THE BARBARIANS #1-3; MARVEL PREVIEW #19; BIZARRE ADVENTURES #26; SAVAGE TALES (1971) #2; SAVAGE SWORD OF CONAN (1974) #1-3, #7, #9, #14-16, #19, #23, #34, #39, #42-43, #52, #55, #61, #119-122, #124-141, #143-145, #147-152, #158-159, #161, #165, #169-170, #172-173, #177, #182-183, #186, #190-194, #196-199, #202, #213, #215, #229-223 and ANNUAL #1 and CONAN SAGA #13, #25, #47, #57 and #97.
