**** (out of five)

He dodges broadsword blades, demons and monsters alike, so who would’ve imagined Conan could be endangered by a mere toad?
Hellboy creator Mike Mignola takes over the writing reigns of the monthly adventures of Cimmeria’s greatest warrior and, along with more spectacular art by Calgary’s Cary Nord, hits it out of the park.
In ‘The Toad’, Conan, fleeing a group of soldiers bent on having his head after he had the wife (and belongings) of a town’s magistrate, stumbles upon a most unlikely shrine, occupied by thousands of tiny toads.
While Conan fights for his life against one determined warrior, one loan toad may spell doom for the combatants.
Throw in a dynamite variant cover by Mignola and this issue’s a must-have.
