DARK HORSE COMICS FIRST LOOKS

FIRST LOOK: CONAN #28

Conan #28 will arrive in stores on May 17 from Dark Horse Comics. The issue is written by Kurt Busiek, with art by Eric Powell and a cover by Tony Harris.

Here's how Dark Horse describes the issue:

"A special one-shot story in honor of Conan creator Robert E. Howard's centennial! From Eisner Award-winning creators Kurt Busiek and Eric Powell, this issue tells the story of one wild and fateful night in the life of a young storyteller in an Aquilonian farming community‹the night that Conan and his cohorts came to town, pursued by demons straight out of hell. Always a dreamer, telling tales of great deeds in faraway lands, the storyteller gets a first-hand look at all-out action, heroism, and sacrifice on the dusty streets of his hometown. Conan rallies the entire town to defend itself or be torn to shreds."

Conan #28 will be 32 pages and will cost $2.99.

Conan: Book of Thoth #3 will arrive in stores on May 24 from Dark Horse Comics. The issue is written by Kurt Busiek and Len Wein, with art and cover by Kelley Jones.

Here's how Dark Horse describes the issue:

"The dread power of Thoth-amon achieves devastating new heights as the young sorcerer sets in motion a plan to place the kingdom of Stygia within his serpentine grip. Having ingratiated himself to a weak-willed heir to the crown, Thoth undertakes the systematic elimination of any who would stand in the way of the fool's assent to the throne. Yet, there is one in the Order of Ibis who grows suspicious of Thoth's solicitous relations with the prince and the increasing amount of royal blood mysteriously spilt. Will this young priest discover the truth about Thoth in time to save the King, or will the snake-god Set sink its fangs into the last, best hope for peace in a war-torn land? Conan's greatest adversary matures into a mighty doer of evil in this penultimate issue of the series chronicling Thoth's origins for the first time!"

Conan: Book of Thoth #3 will be 48 pages and will cost $4.99.

Meanwhile, Rebellion strategist Jorin Sol, recently rescued from the Empire's grip by Skywalker, recovers silently in the flagship of the Rebel fleet. Yet, Sol's scars from Imperial imprisonment and interrogation run more than skin deep, and when he wakes up, supply shortages will quickly become the least of Luke's worries. And if that weren't enough, Luke's crisis is about to become even more personal when he receives a coded message from Imperial officer Janek Sunber, the man he knew a lifetime ago as his close friend, 'Tank.'"
