Synopsis: Warrior. Thief. Pirate…
After adventures on the high seas, Conan returns to shore to find himself haunted by his memories of Belit, captain of the Tigress and Queen of the Black Coast. Can a high-stakes heist draw him out of his tortured past, or will it plunge him deeper into the chaos that has always been waiting for him?
Having broken in and stole Tarims Touch in the last issue. Conan and his thief friends must figure out an escape route while being pursued by the palace guards as well as three deadly spirits that have awoken due to Terims Touch being disturbed. Of course, Conan will recognize the stone material that makes up Terims Touch from a previous adventure he had before he sailed the seven seas with his pirate queen.
Jim Zub continues to stay true to the universe and characters that were set up in the 1930s by the late Robert E. Howard. The writer works brilliantly well with the art team and goes all out to portray the real brutality and savagery of the Conan character. Zub’s writing also does a decent job of portraying Conan’s street smarts when it comes to handling Terims Touch.
Overall. Another fantastic issue.
