In Conan #17, Conan's travels take him to the most dangerous place in Zamora—the infamous City of Thieves! Bruised, angry, and fed up with both men and mysticism, Conan's ready to start handing out a few lessons in ass kicking—and he finds plenty of contenders willing to take him on. And that's only the beginning of an adventure ranging from bloody back alleys to the secrets of the universe—with a few sultry, seductive dangers in between. Cary Nord continues his stirring run of covers, showing one and all why Conan has been a smash success for Dark Horse, and was one of Wizard magazine's picks for biggest events of 2004.
• "On some larger level I know what to expect from Conan, but on an issue-by-issue basis I never know what I'm going to get next. Busiek and company have succeeded in blending the enduring strengths of Robert E. Howard's pulp creation and some exquisite comic-book storytelling to create a modern day masterpiece of the form."—Randy Lander, TheFourthRail.com
