Dark Horse Comics has provided CBR News with a four-page preview of "Conan" #2, in advance of the release of "Conan" #1, which hits stores this week. Last month we learned that the debut issue of "Conan" saw preorders around 51,000 copies, a very healthy number for any comic. CBR News spoke with writer Kurt Busiek about the series last September.
Cry For Dawn creator Joseph Michael Linsner provides another stunning cover, as Busiek and Nord adapt their first original Robert E. Howard story, "The Frost Giant's Daughter." In the wake of a bloody massacre, Conan comes face to face with the ultimate vision of beauty, an irresistible spirit of the northern wastes. Seduced by the nude beauty, Conan then must confront her trollish brothers in this important moment in the life of the greatest fantasy character of all time.
