From the pen of Kurt Busiek (author of Marvels and co-creator of Astro City) and the inkwell of the incredible artist Greg Ruth comes this spectacular collection of the barbarian king of Cimmerians.
Since his first appearance in the comics world in the 1970′s under the stout leadership of Roy ‘the boy’ Thomas and John Buscema from Marvel Comics, Conan has been a stalwart hero of the primary colored world. In this new series released by Dark Horse, the grandeur carries on. Make sure to look for the collection in June.

Writer Kurt Busiek and artist Greg Ruth team up to give you the story of Conan’s early life, from his birth on a Cimmerian battlefield to his coming-of-age as a warrior in the pivotal Battle of Venarium. Sewing the seeds of the Barbarian’s momentous career, this chronicle of Conan’s youthful conquests— both martial and carnal—also showcases master storytellers Busiek and Ruth’s work at its finest.
“[Ruth’s art] is gorgeous to look at, conveying a different but equally lush vision of Cimmeria and the rest of Hyborea.” - The Fourth Rail
