The journey down the legendary Road of Kings is no walk in the park. Being a skilled fighter will only get you so far; you'll also need plenty of gold to keep you going. Luckily, Conan and his companions are skilled at separating the wealthy from their spare treasure! But they'll have to brave monsters, pursuing guards, and the sword-handed Gamesh if they're to reach their final destination. "Dark Horse can do next to no wrong when it comes to handling the Conan franchise. Add Roy Thomas, veteran Conan scribe, and you've pretty much got a formula for a quality barbarian yarn." -Comics Bulletin
