The Gates Of Paradise
A captive Conan is brought north in chains and learns just how far off the mark was his vision of Hyperborea as a land “of gleaming cities, of riches, and wonders, and exotic women, who live lives of serenity and contemplation, in peace with all manner of bird and beast, from the lamb to the griffin and milk and honey flow in streams from the hills.
Robert E. Howard hinted at the nightmares that his character Conan suffered in Hyperborea, but Busiek and company reveal them here for the first time in livid detail.
“Rendered by Cary Nord, it feels like historians unearthed a vibrant, bloody tapestry. These are, once again, the days of high adventure.” — Entertainment Weekly
