Conan's plans to have a half dozen monthly series at Marvel continue in Savage Sword of Conan #7, in which, in this preview, we find Conan faced with an important choice: to upset the status quo, or to support a system of rampant wealth inequality in ancient Shadizar. It begins when Conan finds a man about to have his throat by violent criminals.
Conan doesn't need to get involved. And if this were a poor man, perhaps he would continue walking. However…
It turns out that being rich, even in a fictional ancient city, still comes with certain class benefits that make life easier.
Savage Sword of Conan #7 hits stores on Wednesday.
SAVAGE SWORD OF CONAN #7
(W) Jim Zub (A) Patrick Zircher (CA) Marco Checchetto
HITHER CAME CONAN… THE GAMBLER?! A chance violent encounter in Shadizar lands young CONAN a position as a bodyguard for a wealthy merchant. But a twist of fate will put Conan in the hot seat – and no choice but to play the hand he's dealt in a deadly game of SERPENT'S BLUFF! Conan will rely on his sword – and his wits – while navigating the seedy underworld of "civilized" gambling while making sure he stays clear of the deadly "Debtors Lounge"! Magic, mystery and action abound when writer Jim Zub (CHAMPIONS, AVENGERS: NO ROAD HOME) joins forces with artist Patch Zircher (HULK; TERROR, INC.) for the first of a three-part epic – CONAN THE GAMBLER! PLUS: The next chapter in the all-new CONAN novella "THE SHADOW OF VENGEANCE"!
