Comments: This starts off as so many Conan stories do and rightly so with him in a bar and fighting.
Now day becomes night and an unnatural atmosphere desends on all present. Conan and some mercenaries stand ready yet the Pict woman who rides in warns them to flee. An army of the cursed charges head on at them. The horde is unstopping and the blood and gore is everywhere. This battle is one of dying and only two humans survive.
The art is done in a traditional style that is frequently used with Conan. He is drawn as a grim warrior and the land is foreboding with the atmosphere ominous. These Picts in this horde are no longer human but something else. The Pict woman Brissa is drawn as a beauty yet with no mistake that she is a hardened warrior.
The army of the cursed is still on the move and they have invaded Cimmeria. Can Conan and Bressa stop this unstoppable horde? What will Conan do next?
This is Conan as he was meant to be. Yes he is rough and tough, a barbarian to be sure yet he is a gentleman and has a big heart he helps others. Yet you will have no problem knowing this man is not to be trifled with. Cross him and you will end up dead yet work with him and he would give his life for you a thousand times over if he could. He is a man of honor.
