    Born on the Battlefield: Part One last edited by pikahyper on 02/05/19 01:09AM View full history

    The legend of Conan begins in the middle of a Cimmerian war. His incredible strength and skill, evidenced in his youth, was always credited to the bloody circumstances of his birth. This special fill-in issue brings Greg Ruth, acclaimed artist of Freaks of the Heartland, into the Conan fold. "Born on the Battlefield," by Busiek and Ruth, will be spread over the next two years of the Conan monthly, in six stand-alone chapters, leading up to the epic Battle at Venarium!

    Next issue Cary Nord returns with the second major story arc, as Conan discovers the wonders and horrors of the civilized world-with covers by Leinil Francis Yu!

So I was pleasantly surprised by Kurt Busiek and Greg Ruth's 'Born on the Battlefield'. For a long time we have known that Conan was supposedly born on a battlefield, and without over-aggrandizing, Mr. Busiek...

    Kid Conan: Meet the family! 0

    At long last. Ever since the old Arnie movie version of Conan I have always wanted to know more about the parents of Conan. Who were they? How does one raise someone that becomes Conan? In Born on the Battlefield: Part One I found out. Not much mind you but it's only part one so I am hoping this storyline will go into great detail.Conan's first ever fight is in this comic so that is worth the price alone is it not?I have a feeling his jealous ex-friend Donal will play a significant role to ...
