KING CONAN: THE PHOENIX ON THE SWORD
DARK HORSE COMICS: THE BIRD IS THE WORD
October 7, Milwaukie, OR—Conan’s greatest foe returns in the next installment of the King Conan series!
Conan the Cimmerian writer Tim Truman and artist Tomás Giorello return for another triumphant run. King Conan: The Phoenix on the Sword will surely be a crowd pleaser!
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!
King Conan: The Phoenix on the Sword #1 is on sale January 25, 2012!
