Mmmmmm… dog.
Times are tough in the deserts of far-off Stygia, so tough that the mighty warrior Conan is forced to feast on wild dog.
The tides of fortune appear to be turning for the Cimmerian when he rescues an old ally named Alvazar from certain death (he is buried up to his neck in sand), and is in turn rewarded with the mysterious Demon’s Root, a magical object worth a fortune upon its delivery to an even more mysterious stranger.
Never one to turn up the opportunity to line his wallet, Conan sets off with Alvazar in search of this stranger, only to be caught up in a web of magic that requires our hero to lay down his sword and use a more *ahem* gentle touch to solve a problem.
The former Jonah Hex creative team of writer Joe R. Lansdale and artist Tim Truman bring a little bit of the wild west to the world of Conan and set the stage for what is sure to be a bloody good series.
