Chronicles of King Conan Volume 3: The Haunter of the Cenotaph and Other Stories

"Kings are ever plagued by enemies." The words of the Aquilonian ruler Conan are never more true than when a dark cabal of sorcerers threaten the throne and the lives of the royal family. But even against horrors from beneath the earth, murderous demons from beyond the grave, or ancient baleful gods summoned from dark dimensions, courage, love, and a good sword are formidable proof against evil when wielded by the mighty hand of the barbarian king!Книжка-комикс.

Marc Silvestri (born March 29, 1959) is an American comic book artist, creator and publisher. He currently acts as the CEO for Top Cow Productions.[1]


Early life

Marc Silvestri was born in Palm Beach, Florida.[citation needed]


Silvestri began his career drawing issues for DC Comics and First Comics, but rose as a star at Marvel Comics, and is best known as the penciller of Uncanny X-Men between 1987 and 1990. He then spent two years pencilling its spin-off title Wolverine.

In 1992, Silvestri became one of the original seven artists — along with Jim Lee, Whilce Portacio, Rob Liefeld, Erik Larsen, Todd McFarlane and Jim Valentino — to form the breakaway comics company Image Comics. Silvestri's stable of titles was published under the imprint Top Cow with the first title released being Cyberforce. The demands of publishing meant Silvestri's time to spend on his own artwork steadily diminished. Many of Silvestri's stories were scripted by his brother, Eric Silvestri.

Disputes among the Image partners led to Silvestri briefly leaving the publisher in 1996, but he soon returned after Liefeld severed his own ties with Image.

Top Cow's successes include the titles Witchblade, The Darkness, Inferno Hellbound (publication of which was interrupted for unknown reasons) and Fathom.

In 2004 Silvestri made a brief return to Marvel to pencil several issues of X-Men, collaborating with writer Grant Morrison. Later in the year, he launched a new Top Cow title, Hunter-Killer with writer Mark Waid. He provided covers for the Marvel Comics mini-series, X-Men: Deadly Genesis by Ed Brubaker and Trevor Hairsine.

In June 2006 Top Cow released a Cyberforce #0 featuring the art talents of Silvestri.

In late 2007 (cover date December), he pencilled the X-Men: Messiah Complex one-shot, as well as many covers in the crossover of the same name that followed.

Silvestri executive produced the anime adaptation of Witchblade.

He continued his work on X-Men penciling the first installment, in the form of a One-shot Uncanny X-Men/Dark Avengers crossover Utopia in 2009.

He also contributed to Image United, penciling all the characters he created during his run at Image that feature in the story.

Ron Frenz

Ronald Wade Frenz is an American comic book artist born in Pittsburgh in 1960. His work includes such titles as "Ka-Zar the Savage", "The Further Adventures of Indiana Jones", "Star Wars", "Marvel Saga", "The Mighty Thor", "Thunderstrike" and "Superman". He is one of a very few artist to hold down a regular stint on both "Amazing Spider-Man" and "Superman". He is well-known for his 1980s work on "Amazing Spider-Man", and more recently, for his work on "Spider-Girl" (which he co-created with writer Tom DeFalco). Frenz also co-created the New Warriors in the pages of "The Mighty Thor". Ron is known for his frequent collaborations with writer DeFalco, including the short-lived series "A-Next". Several of Frenz's creations/co-creations have gone on to be featured in regular or mini series at both Marvel and DC including Thunderstrike, New Warriors and Strange Visitor. His characters for Marvel's MC2 line have produced series featuring A-Next, J2, Dark Devil, The Buzz and the only female character to reach 100 consecutive issues at Marvel, Spider-Girl.

When DC Comics decided to change Superman's costume and powers, it was Frenz's design that was chosen for Superman's new look.Fact|date=February 2007 Frenz has a history of working on books where the characters were not in their original costumes/identities. Spider-Man wore his black costume. Thor took on a new secret identity and look, Superman changed costumes and powers all while Frenz was the regular artist on their titles.

DeFalco has called Ron one of his favorite collaborators, and the creative team of DeFalco, Frenz and inker Josef Rubinstein produced one of the most acclaimed runs on "The Amazing Spider-Man". Frenz's lean, quirky rendition of Spider-Man/Peter Parker was closer to the stylings of original Spidey artist Steve Ditko than most of the post-Ditko artists (who followed the Spidey model of John Romita, Sr.). Jim Owsley, editor of the Spider-Man titles at the time, has noted that "Frenz was "passionate" about Spider-Man, verging on fanatical."Fact|date=February 2007 Frenz replaced John Romita, Jr. as the regular artist on "The Amazing Spider-Man" in 1984 and the memorable stories he pencilled (written mainly by Roger Stern and then by DeFalco) included "The Kid Who Collects Spider-Man" in issue #248, the first appearance of Spidey's black costume in issue #252, most of the original stories featuring The Hobgoblin, and Spidey's battle with Firelord in issues #269-270. It was Frenz and Defalco that made the "black suit" a symbiote and were indirectly responsible for the character Venom. Frenz and DeFalco were removed from "The Amazing Spider-Man" in 1986 by Jim Owsley, acting under the orders of Marvel editor-in-chief Jim Shooter. [ [http://phonogram.us/comics/adventures/spidey.htm Spider-Man Editorial Controversy] by former Marvel editor James Owsley / Christopher Priest] Frenz has returned sporadically since to pencil Spider-Man stories, including the 1996 mini-series "Spider-Man: Hobgoblin Lives", written by Roger Stern.

Frenz currently illustrates the "This Happened to Me" feature in the magazine "Outdoor Life".
