Conan Throne of Aquilonia

Conan finds himself wrapped up in a plot to unseat the king of Aquilonia as his journey down the Road of Kings concludes. But when everything goes wrong, the Cimmerian and his coconspirators become lost in the catacombs beneath the city, surrounded by zombies and monstrous insects, all while a civil war brews above their heads! Also in this volume, an encounter at a tavern lands Conan at the end of every sword in a small port city, in a story leading directly into Brian Wood and Becky Cloonan’s acclaimed Conan the Barbarian! CollectingConan: Road of Kings #7–#12!
