Our story opens up in Shamar, which is the Summer Palace of the King of Aquilonia. A scribe has been sent to begin recording the history of the king’s reign. At first the King is seemingly annoyed, however he decides, since he’s in the process of getting inebriated to tell his tale.

The king, we come to find out is Conan himself. And this is the tale of a great battle against the wizard Tsotha-Lanti. And this battle does not start out well for our heroic barbarian.

Everything about this book from the art to the writing to the coloring works extremely well and perfectly captures the world of Conan. This is a comic book at its best! I can tell from this first issue that we are in for a real treat with the King Conan series and greatly look forward to issue #2!
By Crom Dark Horse has truly brought back my love for Conan.

King Conan #1 receives 5 out of 5 swords!
