    Tim Truman and Tomas Giorello continue their fantastic adaptation of Robert E. Howard's only Conan novel “The Hour of the Dragon”, this miniseries being the second half of the story. The first half was told last year in King Conan: The Hour of the Dragon”. King Conan is white-haired and on in years, and is telling his tale to a scribe named Pramis so that he may record it for the ages. And so the story continues…

    After taking to the seas in pursuit of the priest who snatched a powerful gem Conan is after, he realizes he made a mistake not preparing for his sea voyage. He's adrift at sea, no wind, no water, and blistering sun…a real shitty situation. But Crom loves Conan and a slave ship picks him up and expects him to follow orders and start rowing with the rest of the slaves. True to character, Conan doesn't take kind to being told what to do, especially from some douchbag slaver, and some ass-kicking ensues.

    Lo-and-behold, the slaves on the ship are actually The Black Corsairs, a band of pirates he used to run with back in the day, and guess who takes command of the ship….King Conan. They don't know him as the king, but as Amra the Lion, their captain. They join Conan and create a bloody mutiny, continuing on with the barbarian in his quest for that gem.

    Per usual, this team of Truman and Giorello do great justice to the character and their rendition of the Howard novel is excellent. The art is masterfully detailed and intense and added with Truman's high quality scripting, this book is top shelf. Conan fans rejoice, because this is as good as it gets for comic format Cimmerian hijinxs. Being the second half of a story covered over two-series and twelve issues, things should start coming to a head pretty soon, as we head toward the final act. The remainder of the series is expected to retain its high caliber performance and it'll almost be a shame to see it end.
