Kurt Busiek teams up with Greg Ruth for another eye-popping tale spotlighting Conan’s
earliest years. At the age of ten, Conan already finds boyhood too small to contain his
manly strength and ambition. But when disease strikes him and his village, he is left
weak and unworthy. Determined to regain his self-respect, he journeys alone to the site
of one of Cimmeria’s bloodiest battles—but little does Conan know that vile men hide in
the shadows of this place, waiting to prey upon those so foolish as to awaken the fallen
warriors from their uneasy sleep.
