I am completely new to the Conan universe. I never even saw the old Arnold Schwarzenegger films. The character has been around for quite a long time, first introduced in 1932 by Robert E. Howard in the pulp fiction magazine Weird Tales. Conan comics were first published in 1970 by Marvel. The license is now owned by Dark Horse.
This issue is entitled "A Gathering of Vultures," part 2 of 4 in The Phoenix on the Sword. "The Phoenix on the Sword" was one of the original stories written by Howard back in '32.
