First Look: KING CONAN: PHOENIX #1
Dark Horse continues to roll on with Conan's adventures in January with the return of King Conan. This time around, Thoth-Amon returns to plague Conan once more. King Conan: The Phoenix on the Sword will be written by Tim Truman and drawn by Tomás Giorello, who previously teamed on Conan the Cimmerian. The story was one of Robert E. Howard's original Conan short stories, dating back to 1932. The story centers on the King's charges trying to take the throne from him and return it to a true Aquilonian, while Thoth-Amon simultaneously tries to take the monarchy for himself. More on the new series will be coming next week at New York Comic Con. King Conan: The Phoenix on the Sword will launch January 25, 2012! For now, take a look at these exclusive covers and interior pencils from the all-new series. Got a comment? There's lots of conversation on Newsarama's FACEBOOK and TWITTER!
