The Ulimate Guide to the World's Most Savage Barbarian]
This book just came out today and it is unbelievably beautiful! It's from DK Publishing and some of you may be familiar with their incredible Ultimate books and this one is no exception! Written by Roy Thomas - probably the greatest pastiche writer of Conan of all time - and loaded with art from the Marvel comics run, the Dark Horse Conan comic, Frank Frazetta, Gianni, Ken Kelly, Gregory Manchess, Alex Ross, Mark Schultz and art from the Mongoose Publishing Conan RPG!
The book follows the timeline from before the Great Cataclysm to the Hyborian Age after Conan with every Conan adventure covered in between in gorgeous color and art. To quote from the book:
For Conan fans, this book is a dream come true - and a dream seventy years in the making. For those new to the Hyborian Age and to Conan, its greatest champion, this is the ideal introduction to a world of fantastic adventure.
Just an incredible book visually! A great companion book to the Road of Kings, IMO. 8) [/url]
