Hail King Conan! Dark Horse does it again!

The powerful, brute force team of Timothy Truman and Tomas Giorello are back with another killer limted series, KING CONAN: THE PHOENIX ON THE SWORD.  Issue #2 is already out!  King Conan is  now elderly and slightly unhinged as he recalls the time that Thoth-Amon's plotted to usurp him!  Truman and Giorello prove to be the greatest Conan creative team since Thomas and Buscema and they bring back the 'old school' virtue that the writing and artwork actually matter!  Giorello's intricate and stylized work is a tour-de-force of barbaric splendor and there are a few eye-popping full page spreads per issue! Truman channels REH at his darkest and always tells a gripping tale!  Check it out now!  Also check out their previous limited series, THE SCARLET CITADEL, that VC heralded last year.
