Renowned horror and western writer Joe R. Lansdale reunites with his Jonah Hex
collaborator, artist Timothy Truman, to tell the grittiest, roughest, downright meanest
Conan story ever seen in comics.
This five-part series begins in the wretched wastes of Stygia, a burning, grinding stretch
of desert so desolate the only thing more unforgiving are its inhabitants. There, Conan
comes to the aid of an old ally, uncovers a scheme to acquire untold-of wealth, and
punishes his foolish enemies most cruelly. Yet when his treasure hunt reveals an alluring
spirit with long unsatisfied needs, the Cimmerian knows a gentler touch is required to win
Teaming the wild, scathing wit of Lansdale with the unflinching vision of Truman, Conan
and the Songs of the Dead is an unprecedented take on the grand hero of sword-and-
sorcery—pushing one of the most brutal heroes of literature to new extremes!
