I've been keeping an eye open for these at comic shows the past few years since I first learned of their existence, and I haven't even had a sniff of them in the wild in all that time.
Yeah, same here, I've had no luck at any of the comic marts, book fairs, comic-book shops or second-hand bookshops in the UK. I have seen some copies for sale on ebay - but there's nothing like hunting the comic-book down yourself and the smell of the book when flicking through the pages.
In my opinion Queen of the Black Coast has never had a great adaptation for comics. Even the classic Thomas/Buscema run lacks in the art department due to the limitations of the format back then. Queen of the Black Coast should have been adapted to the Savage Sword of Conan magazine in the 70´s just like The Tower of the Elephant. Glenat had a chance to rewrite history but it failed because the artist chosen to remake the story has a style that do not fit Conan in my opinion.

Never heard about these until today. Quite the wildly unfaithful adaptation-no Crom,blonde hair, a crew of vikings and Norse gods being called upon for help. There's no point of even using Conan's name at this point. Doesn't seem like Conan is the protagonist either, Belit has the spotlight here.
