Journey into the Hyborian Age with Valeria, the hero from Robert E. Howard’s classic CONAN story “Red Nails,” on an all-new quest set before the fan-favorite tale! Before her careers as a pirate and mercenary and before she crossed paths with the Red Brotherhood and the likes of Conan of Cimmeria, Valeria was a young woman from Aquilonia, seeking justice for a crime gone unpunished. But as the formidable Valeria makes her way in this world, proving her capability against those who doubt her abilities as a young woman, she will find more than she bargained for in her thirst for revenge. Her deadly fighting skills will be put to the test and her trust will be shaken as she hunts her brother’s killer and comes into her own as a force to be reckoned with in the Hyborian Age! Don’t miss the start of an all-new classic, from Meredith Finch (Wonder Woman, SAVAGE SWORD OF CONAN) and Aneke (Red Sonja, DC’s Bombshells)!
Plus: The first chapter of an all-new novella featuring one of CONAN’s greatest nemeses — the wizard THOTH-AMON!

Am I the only one who is more disturbed by the fact that he is blacksmithing basically naked than the writing?
So far, I find the whole Age of Conan series disturbing... very disturbing. I can understand them getting Belit wrong, there is a tradition going back to the Wood run at DH - even the Glenat adaptation is pretty poor in comparison to the adaptations that follow QotBC. Now they have to go and destroy Valeria. The only way these creators can get Belit and Valeria right is by directly adapting REH. They seem incapable of adding anything of relevance or interest to these great characters. What a waste of potential.
