Welcome back friends to another installment of Retro Records and for your listening enjoyment today we present the 1976 Power Records story “The Crawler in the Mists” featuring Conan the Barbarian!

Thanks to the Power Records Blog for not only the images but for the information on this record and book, it was written by Len Wein (Swamp Thing, Wolverine) and J.M. DeMatteis (Creature Commandos, Spider-Man) featuring artwork by John Buscema (Avengers, Conan) and Neal Adams (Batman, Green Arrow). This was recorded for Power Records in 1976 but the artwork for the storybook was later reused for Conan the Barbarian #116 in 1980.
