For my non-Spanish-speaking amigos, "La Reina de la Costa Negra" translates as "The Queen of the Black Coast" which many of you know is a favorite Conan storyline showcasing the time period in which Conan spent cruising around the coast of Hyboria with his sweetheart, Belit, kicking arse and taking names. Oh, and stealing stuff.
Way back in the 50's, long before we here in the States had our own Conan comic books, Mexico took the Queen of the Black Coast story and ran with it, making La Reina de la Costa Negra, which casted Belit as the star and making Conan a secondary supporting character... and blonde, too!
But they sure turned Belit into a spicy rough-n-tumble go-getter, eh? And take a look at those getaway-sticks!
I would push a toddler off of a cliff to get my hands on some of these!
