Conan the Cimmerian #13

In "Black Altar," the relentless final chapter in the "Black Colossus" adaptation, Natohk's desert hordes surge up the narrow Shamla Pass, and Conan's ragged army desperately attempts to hold their high ground. Outnumbered and facing an army fueled by a zealous, reborn Stygian wizard, simply surviving may be the greatest victory Conan can hope for. Any triumph will ring hollow, though, if Conan can't protect Khoraja's current sovereign, the beautiful Princess Yasmelawhom Natohk has vowed to capture! Timothy Truman, Tomas Giorello, and José Villarrubia bring the gripping, blood-filled Battle of Shamla Pass to life! Smartly written and flawlessly rendered, it's the epic finale to a Robert E. Howard classic. "Tomas Giorello and José Villarrubia's art is so great here that it's the ultimate selling point. From the massive war that rages to the images of scorpions and vultures amidst the desolation, it's just beautiful. Some of the scenes remind me a lot of collaborations by P. Craig Russell and Lovern Kindzierski, and that's no small feat."Comic Book Resources
