Synopsis:
Conan saves Lady Aztrias of Numalia from a pack of wolves. She hires Conan to steal from the wealthy merchant Kallian, who temporarily houses a mysterious bowl from Stygia, said to contain a great treasure. Conan burgles the merchant's house, finds the bowl empty and Kallian dead. The city guard appears and Lady Aztrias accuses him of killing Kallian. The real killer was in the bowl, however: a serpent-man, a big snake with a human head. Conan kills the sepent-man and saves Demetrio. In a vision, Conan sees the Stygian sorcerer Thoth-Amon.

Indexer Notes

Adapted from REH story "The God in the Bowl"; coloring credits acknowledged by Barry Windsor-Smith in Spectrum Super Special #3 [2005]. Nick Caputo believes that Dan Adkins inked pages 1-6 and Sal Buscema inked the remainder.

Story page count is 20 (numbered) in book, but since pages 12 and 13 are half-pages (shared with adverts), the total comes to 19 pages in this index. In reprints the two halfs are normally joined back into one.
