Writer: Timothy Truman
Artist: Tomás Giorello, José Villarrubia
Release Date: May 29th, 2013
Synopsis: King Conan has faced many threats to his throne in Aquilonia—but none more deadly than a traitorous alliance backed by the resurrected sorcerer Xaltotun, at whose command mountains crumble!

As someone who read The Hour of the Dragon novel a loooooong time ago, I can’t wait to revisit this one in the comic book form. I can never get enough when it’s Conan related, maybe I just have a thing for Cimmerians. As always, Dark Horse comics has been doing incredible adaptations of the Robert E. Howard stories and with a solid creative team on this one I don’t expect anything less. If you’re even a remote fan of the Conan franchise just check out the first couple of issues. Make sure you put it in your hold at a local comic book store, or, if you’re like me just get it off the Dark Horse Digital platform.

May 29th will be coming soon and we’ll be keeping up updated on this new series as the issues release, is anybody else going to be checking this out with me? Let us know in the new FORUM! Or leave a comment on this post. CROM will be displeased if you remain silent.

Very Displeased.
