Synopsis for "The Flame Knife Part 2: The Ghouls of Yanaidar"

  • Synopsis not yet written.


  • The Ghouls of Yanaidar is the conclusion of the adaptation of The Flame Knife by Robert E. Howard and L. Sprague de Camp, which was the original sequel to A Witch Shall Be Born, adapted in Savage Sword of Conan #5.
    • At the time of A Witch Shall Be Born publication, Roy Thomas couldn't use the sequel The Flame Knife,[2] as Marvel Comics had obtained the rights only to REH material.[3] He consequently created his own sequel, The Sleeper beneath the Sands (Savage Sword of Conan #6).[2]
    • Later arrangements were made, allowing Marvel to use all Conan stories, whatever the author, and The Flame Knife was adapted in this issue and previous one, but some inconsistencies existed between the two sequels.[2]
    • Mirror of the Manticore (Savage Sword of Conan #58) was later published, Roy Thomas having asked REH-expert Fred Blosser to plot a story, in order to tie all the loose ends together.[2]
