    The ultimate battle begins as King Conan crosses blades with the demonic swordsman who has been terrorizing the kingdom of Khitai from his haunted monastery. While these two warriors engage in mortal combat, an even greater evil reveals itself, a darkness that threatens to consume first the Far East, and then the world, unless Conan can make the necessary sacrifice to end its reign of misery. Superstar artist Pat Lee provides the cover for this final installment of the tale that explores King Conan's travels to the exotic eastern lands of Khitai.

You'd think industrial-strength insecticide would be unfit for human consumption, but AJ apparently never got the memo — as Henry learns when he makes a stomach-turning discovery and Saloth deduces that the Draxx poison does more than kill bugs.
