Conan and Bêlit, Queen of the Black Coast, reunite with their pirate crew aboard the
Tigress only to be drawn into the vermin-infested swamps of Stygia. In the dark depths of
this haunted land, they battle for their lives amidst stately pleasure gardens transformed
into treacherous dens of deceit. There, a twisted beast-king reigns supreme, his hordes of
abominations descending mercilessly upon the Cimmerian and his lover. Together, the
two shall face monstrous man-crabs and a sultry sea-witch, but when an ancient secret is
unleashed it means only one thing for a member of their heroic party—death!
• Featuring ten more issues from the famed Roy Thomas/John Buscema run on Conan the
Barbarian, stories showcasing Conan’s adventures with Bêlit the She-Pirate, one of
Robert E. Howard’s most powerful and beloved female characters.
