After having gotten TPBs gifted to me (including the original 2004 Conan series entire) I have been trying to buy what I can of the TPBs and issues. I want to know a rough order that the series' go in. My notion is:
  • Conan
  • Conan the Cimmerian
  • ?Conan the Barbarian?
  • ?Conan the Road of Kings?
  • King Conan
Is this basically right? Is the Conan the Barbarian title even in the same continuity? I will keep reading either way, great stuff, but some cursed Will to a System afflicts me with comic book organization.

Thanks. That's where I was vaguest on.

The new series TPBs are all numbered, so you basically follow the order. That is it. Starting from # 1 up to # 12.

Excellent, very good. The chronology never used to matter reading Conan stories, but this Hyperborea is a deliberate harmonization so it can be important to follow the threads and characters in the comics.
