WPR First Look – King Conan: The Phoenix on the Sword
Crom, thank you for blessing us with another Conan comic book! That’s right all of you men out there in need of a testosterone surge. CONAN the Cimmerian is back! Since Dark Horse is the comic publisher that has pleased Crom the most, they’ll be putting out what sounds like a kick ass new run.
Writer: Tim Truman
Artist: Tomás Giorello
First hailing Conan as a liberator after he annihilated Aquilonia’s foes on the battlefield, common folk and politicians alike now rally to unseat the Cimmerian from his stolen throne. Conspirators plot to kill King Conan and take the crown for themselves, but their schemes pale in comparison to a terror waiting quietly in the wings—an enemy who has haunted Conan his whole adult life and whose wicked aspirations dwarf those of maneuvering politicians! It’s the return of Thoth-Amon!
