Reading Room: CROM THE BARBARIAN "Spider God of Akka"

...between the years when the ocean drank Atlantis and the Rise of the Sons of Aryas...
Oops! Wrong barbarian!
This is the second tale of the swordslinger who appeared before Conan in the comics!
He starts out totally-lost, with no food or water, and by the end of the story, he's become the ruler a city!
Man, he works fast!

This tale by writer Gardner Fox and artist John Giunta appeared twice within two months, first in Strange Worlds #1, then, along with all the other stories from that issue, in a color insert in the pulp Out of This World Adventures #2!
There's one more tale of Crom to be told before he disappears again into the mists of ancient history.
Watch for it!
