Book Description

July 4 2006 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.

• Busiek and Nord-with a special appearance by legendary illustrator Michael Wm. Kaluta (Books of Magic, Lucifer)-chronicle a seminal adventure in Conan's life.

• Collecting Conan #0, #16-17, #19-22.

• The hardcover edition is exclusive to Direct Market and will be printed to order.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superior to "The Chronicles..." Buy it! June 14 2007
By Victor R. Casados - Published on
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
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Holding on for dear life Oct. 8 2009
By danny boy - Published on
These stories are generally fine, continuing on Conan's youthful adventures and his further development as a thief.

The one totally ridiculous story here is the one entitled Hounds of Marduk. Whilst promising in concept, the "hounds" turn out to be men walking on all fours without any other real attributes. This rather diminishes the fear (fun) factor. Whats more, these hounds have absolutely no other role in this story except to get gobbled up by a totally ridiculous (both in concept and artwork) gigantic worm-like monster.

The other reviewers are not critical of this. I am as I really like this series.
5.0 out of 5 stars The Tower of the Elephant was dark, surreal, and vividly magical June 2 2014
By super antpod - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This Conan story focused on thievery. Conan hears about a gem called the Heart of the Elephant, and courageously seeks to procure it. However, he is not the only one; there is a skilled thief who has planned meticulously to seize the gem. Because of Conan’s relative ignorance, he soon has to take a cautious approach to tackling the Tower of the Elephant. It will not be easy, for vicious unearthly beasts guard the Tower, and nobody has yet succeeded.

This story was very exciting and concise. Robert E Howard’s flair for descriptive style is, in my opinion, unmatched. I like that, although there was a sorcerer in this story, Conan has to use a different approach to defeating him. The Tower of the Elephant was dark, surreal, and vividly magical. I will be reading his next story very soon!

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.
