Writers Kurt Busiek and Len
Wein, creator of Wolverine and Swamp Thing, team up with the grandmaster of
horror art, Kelley Jones, to tell the horrifying origin of Thoth-amon - Conan’s
In the dank alleys of a decaying city, a beggar child conjures visions of a
future where, instead of spitting on him in the streets, the rich and
privileged cower in fear of his terrible authority. Through cunning, murderous
means, he ingratiates himself into a benevolent priesthood, only to turn the
church and the nation itself over to the terrible snake-god, Set!
This essential piece of the Conan mythos reveals the secrets behind the dread
sorcerer Thoth-amon for the first time, collecting the four-issue mini series
from Wein, Busiek and Jones (what a combo – unmissable for them alone).
