Conan the Barbarian: The Mask of Acheron

With the release of the red-band trailer for the new Lionsgate film Conan the Barbarian, Dark Horse Comics saw a huge surge in sales of the recently published adaptation, Conan the Barbarian: The Mask of Acheron, which has completely sold out of its entire first printing!

Conan the Barbarian: The Mask of Acheron is based on Conan the Barbarian, the new major motion picture starring Jason Momoa, Rose McGowan, and Ron Perlman.

After witnessing his wife burned at the stake, warlord Khalar Zym sets out on a quest to find the mythical Mask of Acheron, an ancient artifact that will bring his beloved back to life. In his search across the lands, Zym destroys a village in northern Cimmeria, where a boy born of battle survives and is cast out into the world, alone. Years later, Zym crosses paths again with the boy who survived—Conan. He must now contend with this barbarian nuisance who is set on vengeance for the slaughter of his village. Zym and his daughter, Marique, eventually clash with Conan in an epic final battle, the outcome of which will decide the fate of the world.

This book will not be reprinted so hurry now to your local bookstore and grab a copy before they’re gone for good!
