Journey into the Hyborian Age with Valeria, the hero from Robert E. Howard's classic CONAN story "Red Nails," on an all-new quest set before the fan-favorite tale!
Before her careers as a pirate and mercenary and before she crossed paths with the Red Brotherhood and the likes of Conan of Cimmeria, Valeria was a young woman from Aquilonia, seeking justice for a crime gone unpunished. But as the formidable Valeria makes her way in this world, proving her capability against those who doubt her abilities as a young woman, she will find more than she bargain more

    If you're a fan of Robert E. Howard's heroine, Age of Conan: Valeria is a worthy origin story. If you merely like stories about strong women with a more realistic edge, it will suit that purpose as well. Highly recommended to all lovers of high adventure, even if they don't usually enjoy the fantasy genre. Read Full Review

    I'm a big sword and sorcery genre fan so this was always going to be in my wheelhouse. As a character I was most familiar with her from the original Conan movie so I was quite interested in learning more about her own story. If you want to find out about one of the other legendary characters from the Hyborian Age… this is a great place to start, learn of her origin and her motivation to make her name known.

    Fans of teen girl fantasy might find something for them here, but there are much better told examples of the genre elsewhere. Fans of the character whose name the comic bears would be best to avoid this anemic travesty and save themselves some money and heartache in the process. Read Full Review
