This was a good sword and sorcery comic book series from the 1970's. It features the excellent art of Jesse Santos and that's a big plus He also drew the "Occult files of doctor spector' And this series benefits from his artwork immensely. The writer also wrote that really good horror series. In this one , Don Glut did a decent job of coming up with decent sword and sorcery tales. He originally wanted to do it for a magazine which would have been better for sure. As it would have been more racey and sexy. This is after all a comic book from the heavily censorship era so we don't get that. I read these comics back in the day as a kid and I loved them. They are fun and while not great, the art makes up for what the writer was allowed to do with his series. Don GLut did manage to make a good series. But the distribution of gold key comics was never that good so that is why all of gold keys many good titles eventually died. Not due to lack of sales. I bought lots of gold key original series because they were all well done and drawn. This is not Conan , who is the king of sword and sorcery figures. But it is a good entry into the field , if it could have been done as a magazine it could have been even better. But you won't be bored with this volume of good sword and sorcery stories and the covers are fantastic!

Another well produced Archive book collection. Dagar was one of those early barbarian characters created to fill in the void for the sword and sorcery genre, when there was burgeoning interest in all things Cimmerian... But symptomatic of those early wannabee barbarians, it was difficult to posit a role or situation that didn't seem campy (the chief baddie always had a skeleton-like visage), and Dagar smacks of Prince Valiant without a helmet. It's surprising that this title lasted as long as it did, until hither came a barbarian and Conan was his name...
