Synopsis

Conan and Valeria enter a mysterious walled city. After they become separated, Valeria discovers that the city is indeed inhabited.

Notes

Adapted from Robert E. Howard's story. Per "Still Waiting For The Absolute Barry-Windsor Smith Conan Volumes" in Spectrum Super Special #3 [2005], Smith subsequently re-inked [including the 2 pages Marcos inked at the end of chapter one] the entire story, added additional details to splash page and elsewhere, and colored the story for its reprint in Marvel Treasury Edition (Marvel, 1974 series) #4.
