This issue reveals how his people were wiped out -- at the hands of the evil Memnon. The same month that the new blockbuster, The Scorpion King, hits theaters, Dark Horse concludes the official prequel. Before you see the movie, read this comic and learn the backstory of the hero -- and the secrets of the movie's villain Memnon.
