If you're a fan of Conan the Barbarian, Dark Horse has the perfect collection for you, and we've got an up-close preview of the colossal collection.
The new volume is titled The Conan Reader TPB and features one of the biggest and most impressive collections of Conan stories Dark Horse has produced. It features almost 700 pages of content, including one-shots, mini-series, and short stories from a variety of creators. That includes Conan and the Jewels of Gwahlur, which you can get a preview of below and in the gallery.
The preview features an expert from the story, which features Conan and Muriela searching for a group of priests, priests who they aim to steal some loot from. They end up finding their targets and something even better in the process, the Teeth of Gwahlur. Unfortunately, as evil magical priests are want to do, they try and summon some otherworldly creature...because its' a Tuesday I guess and as you can imagine that process goes horribly wrong.
Note to self, don't try and summon things you don't understand...seriously, it never works out, as these idiot priests soon find out. It's going to take a while to clean up all that blood, and the one survivor is never going to get it all out of his tunic...what? Just sayin.
You can check out the preview above and in the gallery.
