Conan volume 7: Cimmeria marks a transitional period in young Conan's life, as he spurns civilization -- with its turncoats and legal trappings -- and returns to the beloved, brutal country of Cimmeria, where he was born and raised. The dangers found in the snowy mountain passes of his barbaric homeland are a welcome change from the mind games and treachery Conan encountered in the cities of the East, but there are unfortunate lessons in treachery to be learned here, too. When a tentative truce with the Aesir is threatened by the actions of Caollan, the first woman Conan ever loved, Conan again finds himself at the heart of a larger conflict that will test not only his physical strength and cunning mind -- but his passionate heart as well. * "(Truman) goes back to the same historical and mythical source material Howard must have used and mines it to expand on what Howard already did. Now that's the way to put your stamp on a Howard tale. As a result, this reeks of Robert E. Howard influence. There is blood and there is fire... there is death and despair and indomitable will. Basically, everything you could want from a Conan story." --ComicsBulletin.com * The edition version is a direct market exclusive of the trade-paperback collection, printed to initial orders only!

Conan, once a wandering thief, tries his luck as a professional warrior, joining Amalric's mercenary forces to live as a rank-and-file soldier. However, something much more than luck will lead Conan on a collision course with the strongest, strangest army he's ever faced! Princess Yasmela-the city of Khoraja's remaining sovereign-has been haunted by terrifying apparitions of the wizard Natohk, and when Natohk threatens to bring his demonic hordes to Khoraja, Yasmela prays to the god Mitra for help. Mitra actually responds and tells her to place the fate of her entire kingdom into the hands of the first man she meets out in the city streets-and that man is a drunk, hesitant barbarian! Conan may turn out to be Khoraja's best hope for survival, but his distrust of the soft upper classes and their disdain for his common station may derail any possibility of working together to halt Natohk's bid for world domination. * Collects Conan the Cimmerian #8-#13.
