Description

He forged a whole new genre - sword and sorcery. He spawned a thousand imitators and after 90 years he's still going strong! He is CONAN THE BARBARIAN - THE GREATEST WARRIOR OF ALL TIMES! And he's back for a whole new epic saga in search of high adventure and battle. CROM! Pirate! Thief! Mercenary and warrior, the legendary Conan the Barbarian is back! Armed with just his wits and his sword, Conan sets out for the first time from his beloved Cimmeria in search of glory and adventure. Often copied, but never bettered, this is the welcome return of the first and mightiest hero ever to stride the world. On the eve of his first major battle, young Conan of Cimmeria pictures a life beyond the borders of his homeland and yearns for a life of adventure undreamt of in his small village. Visions of future allies and unspeakable evils he will eventually encounter throughout his fabled career fill his mind, as he makes the choice to take his first fateful step into the Hyborian Age.

Reviews
"Titan Comics' new Conan: The Barbarian series carries the same spirit as those classics, resulting in a fresh start that would make the character's creator, Robert E. Howard, proud." Comics Beat

"By Crom, this is a fine tale! 10/10." Superherohype.com

"Every aspect of this book was on point! The Buscema-inspired artwork from De La Torre couldn't be more perfect. Jim Zub's writing would make REH proud. 10/10" League of Comic Geeks

"I think this is fantastic! It's a solid read, it's entertaining, the art is amazing" Graphic Policy

"De La Torre's artwork is gorgeous and dynamic, and it hearkens back to some of the most beloved depictions of the character. Jim Zub has been vocal about his enthusiasm for Conan for many years, and there's no other active comic writer I trust more to do the barbarian justice." Grimdark Magazine

"A classic Conan tale and Jim Zub seems the perfect fit for it...The nostalgia factor was a 10." Comic Book Club

"This looks like something that just leaped out of Savage Sword. I was so floored when I saw this...this reads like a great Conan comic. The text in here could have been written by Roy Thomas or Robert E. Howard. It perfectly captures the character, especially the wanderlust." Todd Luck

"They chose an art style that specifically speaks to Conan...That style of art speaks to you as a reader. It speaks to me as a reader. It speaks to people who are going to be picking this up from scratch...I think they really knocked it out of the park for issue zero." Tennessee Fats

"Jim Zub delivers a sword-slashing, brooding, action-packed debut worthy of Robert E. Howard fans, and Robert De La Torre's art is a perfect homage to classic Conan comics." Comical Opinions

"Plants the seeds for some exciting adventures ahead." ComicBook.com

"Conan the Barbarian #1 is a lightning jump-start that should please existing fans, and give newcomers a great sense of pulp adventure, and sword and sorcery's, distinct escapist offering." - PFangirl

"Roberto De la Torre produces some great artwork" Sci Fi Pulse

"An all-star creative team and balls-to-the-wall execution make this take on Conan's legend a winner. Longtime fans will be pleased with the start to this new era." AIPT

Absolutely Fantastic

This was my first time ordering from SciFier but it definitely won't be my last. When it comes to buying books online the packaging needs to be good, SciFier were great they used bubble wrap to make sure they arrived perfect. Amazing range of books that majority are lower priced than most book retailers. Wonderful service, I'll definitely be recommending to everyone. Thank you.
