Dark Horse's exciting new _Conan_ era continues with a second round of adventure! As Conan recovers from last issue's clash with raiders on the Cimmerian borderlands, a kind stranger shelters him and weaves a tale of Conan's grandfather, Connacht. As an older Cimmerian, Connacht inspired young Conan with tales of dazzling lands and beautiful women, but the story the snowbound stranger relates now is one of a brush with death and supernatural beastsbrought on after an act of selfless kindness. Is it true that "no good deed goes unpunished"¦? With cover artist Frank Cho on board, writer Timothy Truman, artist TomÃ¡s Giorello, and colorist JosÃ© Villarrubia are again joined by comic-book veteran Richard Corben in a moody, horrific, and surprising issue that will leave readers in a tailspin!
