Kurt Busiek and Greg Ruth return to Conan with another blood-stirring installment of "Born on the Battlefield," a series of stand-alone stories chronicling Conan's portentous formative years. Spring has come to the hard hills of Cimmeria and life is eventful for Conan--the robust youth earning the affection of more than one young woman. Yet gentle days are not long-lived in this land. A storm comes on the horizon. When it breaks, Conan will discover the consequences of his choices, determining not only his own fate, but that of his entire village--featuring the formative event from Robert E.

The Conan ongoing series was a Wizard Magazine Book of the Month for March 2005!

"Conan has an endearing earnestness that hearkens back to the golden age of pulp fiction." --Publisher's Weekly
