The Marvel UK version of Savage Sword of Conan (there was a pre-existing Marvel US title of the same name) was first launched as a weekly on 8th March 1975, reprinting American Conan and King Kull strips. It was not a notable success and was cancelled after just 18 issues on 5th July the same year, with the Conan strip (rather oddly) being moved into the pages of The Avengers, and from there into the Mighty World of Marvel weekly for a short time. The Conan strip, which was taken from US Marvel’s regular colour monthly (though these reprints were in black and white) later appeared intermittently in issues of Marvel Comic, Valour and Future Tense, and the sulky Cimmerian also featured in his own Pocket Book.
