Once a slave, now an angry rebel, it’s Conan versus the full might of the sorcerous kingdom of Hyperborea! With the lives of his allies and his lover in the balance, the swordsman must triumph over the most ancient and corrupt kingdom of his world—or watch them die! Original Conan author Robert E. Howard showed that the barbarian held a deep hatred against this magical nation, and vowed one day to grind them into the dust. Now his reasons, and the grisly truth about Hyperborea’s most sacred rites, are finally revealed.

    There are a couple moments where the art looks unfinished, but for the most part the art is one of the main reasons why this issue was able to convey such a powerful emotional impact, from the look of near madness on Conan's face on the opening page as he tears through the guards, to his unfocused desperation when he's trying to stop the people from flinging themselves off the ledge. The nightmarish scene that he finds at the bottom of the pit was also quite effective, though I must confess I was a bit disappointed that the creatures he finds feasting on the dead didn't attack him. The one page spread of Conan facing the oncoming crowd was a great visual moment. Read Full Review
