"Home for the Hunt"
*After Conan left Cimmeria and entered into a successful career as a brutal mercenary, he became the leader of Princess Yasmela's Khorajan army. In the calm after a successful campaign, Conan quickly tires of his pampered life as the princess's protector and lover. While Joe Kubert shows us what trouble a restless barbarian can get into on royal palace grounds, Tim Truman takes us back to the Cimmerian village of Conan's youth -- where a surviving Skrae creature claws its way toward Fialla, Conan's mother.
This standalone story, called "Home for the Hunt," has ties to both the "Cimmeria" story arc from 2008 and the current "Black Colossus" arc!
With a nod to the past and hint at what's to come, this issue is perfect for both longtime readers and for intrigued fans who are looking for a "jumping on" point.
