Set Description:

A collection of Savage Tales featuring Conan the Barbarian and Ka-Zar. All but one magazine are the highest graded, so this is the strongest Savage Tales Vol. 1 set in the Registry - ever. And it only took 10 years to build! Sigh... :-)

In June 2016 this set suddenly got many more views than usual. If anyone knows why, do contact me, thank you.

Some of these magazines in high grade are so rare that quoting Mr. Indiana Jones seems to be in order:

"This should be in a museum!"

- and what better way is there to display rare books than using scans on Collectors Society - without exposing the books to light, oxygen or changes to humidity or temperature?

Thus I do feel some responsibility to share such rare books with others - this is not just a hobby, but small projects trying to preserve comic book history.

And of course I still remember this famous quote from the movie "Conan the Barbarian" (1982):

Mongol General: Hao! Dai ye! We won again! This is good, but what is best in life?
Mongol: The open steppe, fleet horse, falcons at your wrist, and the wind in your hair.
Mongol General: Wrong! Conan! What is best in life?
Conan: Crush your enemies. See them driven before you. Hear the lamentations of their women. And then get the best set of Savage Tales CGC magazines.
Mongol General: That is good! That is good.
