Dark Horse Comics recently released their second issue of the "Conan The Cimmerian" comic. Anyone interested in learning the lore of Hyboria may want to check these comics out as they are based around our beloved King Conan the Cimmerian. The official Age of Conan Hyborian Adventures site has posted an excerpt from the new comic on their site to wet your appetite.
Upon Conan's return to his homeland at the start of our new series, he quickly runs afoul of Vanir raiders on the Cimmerian borderlandsÂthinning their ranks with sword and spear before being aided by a peculiar stranger. With Conan recovering from his battle wounds, the kind stranger offers shelter . . . and a story about Conan's grandfather, Connacht. As an older Cimmerian, Connacht inspired young Conan with tales of dazzling lands and beautiful women, but the story the snowbound stranger relates is one of a brush with death and supernatural beastsÂbrought on after an act of selfless kindness. Is it true that "no good deed goes unpunished" . . . ?
