Robert E. Howard’s most famous creation has lived in the pages of comic books for decades. But while Conan’s best-known comic adventures have focused on a barbarian in his prime, or in his later years as King Conan, this series spotlights a younger Cimmerian. Here, Conan is just starting out on the path that would make him a legend… not that he’s much different than the Conan readers are most familiar with. Even at a young age the man found battle, bloodshed, and damsels in distress at every turn, and relished it to boot.
The creative team of Kurt Busiek and Cary Nord seems to take similar joy in lovingly chronicling these adventures for Dark Horse. Joseph Michael Linsner contributes cover art.
