Writer Kurt Busiek and artist Greg Ruth team up to give you the story of Conan's early life, from his birth on a Cimmerian battlefield to his coming of age as a warrior in the pivotal Battle of Venarium. Sowing the seeds of the barbarian's momentous career, this chronicle of Conan's youthful conquests—both martial and carnal—also showcases master storytellers Busiek and Ruth's work at its finest. • "[Ruth's art] is gorgeous to look at, conveying a different but equally lush vision of Cimmeria and the rest of Hyboria."—The Fourth Rail • Collects Conan #8, #15, #23, #32, #45, and #46.
