Weird Tales from December 1932 was the first issue with a Conan story. It featured ‘The Phoenix on the Sword’ where Conan is King.It is actually a rewritten King Kull story.

Girasol Collectables did a great replica of the original with scanned text and interior art right from the original pulp pages. No editing. No reset text.
