A new story that perfectly captures the ferocious audacity of Robert E. Howard‘s young Conan. I really like it! -Bud  Conan is just twenty years old and the only survivor of a savage battle at sea. He’s rescued by a slave ship, just short of death, and is cared for by fellow prisoner Suty. it takes very little time until his strength is back and he smashes the slavers, kills the captain, burns the boat, and with Suty, is off with a mystery treasure box. This takes him to the Stygian city of Kheshatta, a beautiful smart young warrior woman also after the treasure, and a sorcerer who’s literally destroying the city to find the treasure.

Now the three comrades‘ journey into the city's mysterious underground reveals more mysteries, dark magic, hordes of undead warriors, a savage vengeful sorcerer who is now inside Conan’s mind....a no-holds-barred story harkening back to the earliest times of the Hyborian Age, and the unparalleled action and violence that Howard brought us in the earliest Conan stories!

Alex Ross provides covers for all five issues of this unique, stand-alone story. Each one is superb, perfectly capturing the Conan first shown to us by Frank Frazetta in those legendary paperback covers of the sixties and seventIes.

Bonus variant covers for every issue by Ron Garney, plus special variant covers by Avi Granov, George Perez, Kevin Eastman, Tomi Varga and others.

From an interview with Kevin Eastman online:

Marvel.com: You’re a comics legend, having co-created the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and forged (sword pun intended) your own epic path in comics. What is it like to be a part of Conan’s return on SAVAGE SWORD OF CONAN? 

Kevin Eastman: First - Thank you for the very kind words! "Legend" is more than a stretch to describe me though. As I see myself, every day I get to get up and draw comics for a living takes me back to square one, a goofy kid with a dream to aspire to join the ranks of those incredible artists and writers I admired -- wanted to be like -- since I was ten years old. Honestly, I'm fifty-six now and I'm drawing my first Marvel cover -- and Conan?!!! Holy Hell! You can't imagine how hard I am geeking on this right now. A real honor times ten.   

In fact, the only comic I ever asked Stan Lee to sign for me (like seriously, ever) was my copy of Conan The Barbarian #1.
