Legendary writer Len Wein, creator of Wolverine and Swamp Thing, teams up with Conan ongoing writer Kurt Busiek, and the grandmaster of horror art Kelley Jones to tell the horrifying origin of Thoth-amon-Conan's greatest adversary!
In the dank alleys of a decaying city, one beggar boy conjures visions of a future where, instead of spitting on him in the streets, the rich and privileged cower in fear of his terrible power. For young Thoth, hunger and pain is a way of life, twisting his heart into believing that no wickedness is too costly if it can afford a means of escape-not even the betrayal of one's sole confidant in the wretched, unfeeling world.
With art by the inimitable Jones, co-written by Busiek, responsible for the most successful relaunch of a fantasy character in comics history, and Wein, mastermind behind many of comics' most beloved modern heroes, this series finally reveals the secrets behind the dread sorcerer Thoth-amon!
