P. CRAIG RUSSELL (W/A) and LOVERN KINDZIERSKI (C) She's made a string of bad choices, and now a young woman has let herself become the pawn of mercenaries-and one of those mercenaries is Conan of Cimmeria. As the former dancing girl poses as the dead oracle of a primitive cult, Conan puts his military and thieving experience together in one of his last adventures before becoming King. P. Craig Russell, the award-winning artist who's made his reputation adapting literature to comics, takes the greatest hero to ever make the leap from books to comics in this dazzling adaptation. With stories like The Jewels of Gwahlur, Robert E. Howard invented the genre of sword and sorcery fiction, and no matter how many times the master has been imitated, stories like this one have not been surpassed. P. Craig Russell, Eisner Award-winner, is known for tales like Elric: Stormbringer and Ring of the Nibelung and his collaboration with Neil Gaiman on Murder Mysteries. Jewels of Gwahlur is a direct adaptation of a Howard Conan story.
