In 1970, Roy Thomas and artist Barry Windsor-Smith brought Howard's work to the Marvel Universe with Conan the Barbarian #1 (after a "trial run" by creating Starr the Slayer and publishing it in The Sword and the Sorcerers, Chamber of Darkness #4). Thomas added to Howard's universe by introducing the She-Devil, Red Sonja.
