Written by fan-favorite scribe Akira Yoshida (X-Men/Fantastic Four; Wolverine, Elektra) with exquisite art by Paul Lee (Detective Comics; Buffy: The Vampire Slayer), Conan and the Demons of Khitai takes place many years in the future from the award-winning ongoing series and marks Conan’s first appearance as King in Dark Horse’s best-selling comics revival of the legendary fantasy hero.

When Conan receives an invitation from the Eastern kingdom of Khitai to open trade in precious jewels and spices, he decides to travel into this longmysterious land. Unbeknonwst to Conan, those who have requested his company may have far more devious intentions than trade and beasts unseen by Western eyes lurk amidst the shadows. Soon King Conan runs afoul of an evil sorcerer and his demonic retainers in this tale of silent spectral warriors and ghastly monsters in the Far East.

“Over the course of my career, I have walked down many paths, but never did I imagine I would one day travel the road to Khitai with Conan the Cimmerian!” remarked writer Akira Yoshida. “Guiding the King of Aquilonia through these strange Asian lands has been a daunting one. As Robert E. Howard had written of the mystic land of Khitai, but never in any great detail, we were all strangers in a strange land on this journey. But working with editor Scott Allie and artist Paul Lee has been a pleasure and the adventure we’ve taken with Conan is one we hope everyone will be talking about.”

“I am thrilled at the chance to work on such a legendary title,” commented artist Paul Lee. “This series has given me a chance to explore a new approach to painted comics. I am totally excited!”

Conan and the Demons of Khitai is a four-issue miniseries written by Akira Yoshida with art by Paul Lee and covers by Pat Lee (Transformers; Darkminds; Warlands). Issue #1 arrives on sale October 5 with a retail price of $2.99.
