Conan's travels take him to the most dangerous place in Zamoria-the infamous City of Thieves! Bruised, angry, and fed up with both men and mysticism, Conan's ready to start handing out a few lessons in ass-kicking-and he finds plenty of contenders willing to take him on. And that's only the beginning of an adventure ranging from bloody back-alleys to the secrets of the universe-with a few sultry, seductive dangers in-between. Cary Nord continues his stirring run of covers, showing one and all why Conan has been a smash success for Dark Horse, and one of Wizard magazine's picks for biggest events of 2004.

    The use of a guest-artist on the next issue leaves me a bit concerned, as I had become quite comfortable with the pattern of Cary Nord providing the art for a six issue stretch, and then the book would give him a one month break to give him the extra time he needed to keep this book's monthly shipping schedule. However, the book already made use of its guest issue only a couple issues back, and as such next issue's visit is cause for concern. Still, in today's market Cary Nord has proven to be a pretty steady artist, as I don't believe the book has missed any of its shipping dates, and providing art for 16 of the 18 issues does earn him significant credit in the bank when it comes to proof of his ability to provide the art for this series. Plus, it doesn't hurt that he has a very unique style that lends itself perfectly to this title, as there's some lovely big impact visuals in this issue, from the head chopping display by Conan, to the lovely final page image that closes the issue Read Full Review
