Marvel Comics Classic Kull, Conan and Red Sonja, Up for Auction

Marvel Comics knows how we like our heroes, and that is beefy, thick, and full of rage. Conan, Kull, Red Sonja. These epics are how many got introduced to comics and, to this day, hold a special place in most readers' hearts. While they get relaunched all the time by many different publishers, many would argue that these runs of comics from the '70s will never be topped, and they are right. Taking bids at Heritage Auctions today is a lot of 25 70's Marvel Comics epics, all raw and ready to read. This lot includes Conan #24, which is where Red Sonja made her debut in comics. The bundle is sitting at a cool $105 as of this writing. Check out a few of the books below.
