Conan has everything a barbarian could ever hope for.
He has claimed the throne of Aquilonia, married the beautiful Zenobia and she is carrying his child.
All seems perfect until the arrival of an envoy from the land of Stygia, homeland of Conan’s arch-nemesis, the wizard Thoth-Amon.
While this ambassador, Ra-Sidh, claims to come in peace, his mere presence causes Zenobia to have nightmares. Shortly after Conan has Ra-Sidh and his entourage escorted from his castle, Zenobia falls ill and goes into labour, delivering the king’s son — stillborn.
Knowing in his heart that Ra-Sidh’s sorcery is to blame, Conan declares war on all of Stygia and sets out on a campaign of destruction.
Writer Joshua Dysart (Violent Messiahs) and artist Will Conrad (Serenity: Those Left Behind) lay a great foundation for a promising new series should be full of intrigue and bloodshed.
