Those familiar with the canon of Conan know that despite his mighty hews and love of combat, he spends much of his time in the civilized parts of Hyboria working as a thief. While executing a complex plan to steal the sacred Black Pearl of Gouvia, he finds himself captured by a warrior princess and given a choice. King Midora offers the Cimmerian his freedom and the gem he sought if he can rescue his other daughter, the heir to the kingdom, from the clutches of a traitorous wizard. Jimmy Palmiotti’s script follows the classic pattern of Robert E. Howard’s original stories, with magic, monsters, sex and above all, glorious battle. The art by Palmiotti and Mark Texiera hearkens back to the old Marvel series (although the hacking and slashing is probably a bit more explicit then it was in the seventies).
