Conan goes against his ingrained barbarian instincts and sides with a strange wizard in order to topple those who ensnared them both in the horrific dungeons beneath the Scarlet Citadel! Timothy Truman, Tomás Giorello, and José Villarrubia—the monthly team behind the critically acclaimed Conan the Cimmerian comic-book run—move ahead many years in the barbarian’s life to a time when Conan has just lost the crown of Aquilonia and must fight to reclaim it from several betrayers and their evil wizard!
