Book Description

Aug. 31 2010 Conan (Dark Horse) (Book 3)
Eisner award-winning writer Kurt Busiek (JLA/Avengers, Astro City), Eisner award-nominated artist Cary Nord (Daredevil), and Eisner award-winning color artist Dave Stewart (Ultimate Fantastic Four, DC: The New Frontier) continue their groundbreaking run on Dark Horse's best-selling Conan series with an adaptation of one of Robert E. Howard's greatest Conan tales, "The Tower of the Elephant"! Fed up with both civilization and mysticism, Conan travels to the infamous City of Thieves to take out his frustrations. When a bar fight uncovers the legend of the impregnable Tower of the Elephant, he becomes determined to rob it, setting out on a quest unlike any he's undertaken - one that will involve new comrades, sudden death, horrifying creatures, and gruesome unsettling fates for both gods and men.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superior to "The Chronicles..." Buy it! June 14 2007
By Victor R. Casados - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have the first 3 in this series:
The Frost Giant's Daughter And Other Stories, The God In The Bowl And Other Stories and The Tower Of The Elephant And Other Stories.

I find the artwork to be superior to the "Chronicals of Conan", and there is always at least one original Howard tale included in these books. The "Other Stories" stand up very well to the Howard adventures. They are very much in the same spirit and style, and are fitting tributes.
So far all have been extremely enjoyable, and I plan to purchase the rest of them.
I only buy what I like (as opposed to collecting for its own sake), and I like this!!

Great for new readers and old Conan fans alike!

4.0 out of 5 stars Busiek and Nord do it again! Oct. 20 2008
By Parker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The Tower of the Elephant continues the great tradition of Dark Horse's Conan relaunch which began in the last two volumes.
In this volume, Conan hits his stride as a professional thief and we are treated to three prequel chapters setting up the "Tower of the Elephant" short story from Conan creator Robert E. Howard, a story which solidifies Conan's reputation in criminal circles.
Minor flaws for this book are a dip in quality in the first part of Tower (chapter 4) where Cary obviously is falling behind and sketches his way through about 12 pages worth of story, and although it is always nice to see Mike Kaluta draw something, I would much prefer to see Mr. Nord draw the flashback sequence himself.
Still a fine book and worth your time.
5.0 out of 5 stars Conan the Thief Dec 18 2013
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This volume of the new Conan series had been my favorite thus far as I am a fan of Conan as a thieving rogue. I was always intrigued by the idea of a hulking muscled barbarian thief running across roof tops and those were always my favorite tales of Conan when I was young. It was a lot of fun to see a modern retooling of the character, especially with the outstanding artwork. The more volumes of this I read the more I love the surly cimmerrian all over again.

Good stories and good art work. I am looking forward to volume 4 and more Conan adventures. If you enjoy fantasy and comics you should read this.
5.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling adaptation of Robert E. Howard's original Conan stories Oct. 22 2013
By Axton Blessendon, Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
"Conan Vol. 3: The Tower of the Elephant and Other Stories"
Written by Robert E. Howard, Adapted by Kurt Busiek
Illustrated by Cary Nord & Michael William Kaluta
(Dark Horse, 2006)
. . .

This third volume in Dark Horse's full-color Conan series is an exquisite adaptation of Robert E. Howard's original work, with crisp, tight scripting and painterly artwork that's like having an entire graphic novel produced by Kelly Freas or Boris, the guys who did all those classic paperback covers back in the '60s and '70s. The slightly embarrassing Conan-in-a-loincloth beefcake taps into the Tom Of Finland homoerotic core of the Cimmerian ethos, but that's okay, since the books in general bring the pure, violent Id of Conan to the fore, and ring more true than any other Conan adaptations seen yet in any medium. Highly recommended! (Axton)
