Crom's Teeth! Feb. 7 2006
By Kurt Ellmauer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Having never having read comic books as a youngster, the new Conan series was the hook that set my newfound enjoyment of a weekly trip to the local comic shop.

The writing and the artwork led me to purchase some of the other compilations of the writings of Robert E. Howard. Truly, Howard as an author was ahead of his time, both in the prose and the scope of creating a fictional world where men of "...gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth..." roamed the land. Having now read many of the new comics, as well as the older Howard writings, I can attest that they comics are faithful adaptations to the original works. I would think that Howard would approve of them. Truly, these comics look to me to have a dirty, grimy, and realistic feel to them, compared to other current comics, where clean lines and ink move from one panel to the next.

I would like to think that you will enjoy these compilations as much as I have. I now return to the Hyborian age...

Continues the faithful adaptation of Howard's greatest creation, but a step down from Volume 1 Aug. 13 2009
By Chip Hunter - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This second volume in Darkhorse's new Conan line finds our hero in the lands of 'civilization' for the first time. In Nemedia, he find that speed and strength alone won't get him too far, as he becomes entangled in an intricate plot to steal an artifact (or be framed for doing so). After discovering how treacherous city life can be, Conan helps in solving a murder case and then finds himself playing the guard for a priest of Ibis on a desperate mission. The whole story is full of action, humor, and drama, as Kurt Busiek and Cary Nord continue to expand their own [Robert E Howard]-faithful setting. This volume also introduces Conan's arch nemesis, Thoth Amon, as well as a new (and intriguing) creation by the authors, Janissa. The story here didn't live up the sheer awesomeness of The Frost Giant's Daughter in action, suspense, or artwork (thus the 4-star, instead of 5-star rating), but is still highly recommended.
Just as Nice as a Savage Sword issue May 29 2014

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is well written and reads very much like the old Savage Sword issues I own. A very creep story and has plenty of action. This graphic novel is faithful to Robert E. Howard original story. I recommend this one.
Just as good as volume 1 May 6 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I enjoyed Volume 1 so much that i immediately ordered volumes 1-4. The God in the Bowl is just as good as volume 1 if not better.

Its a shame that this group of artists/writers didn't keep going for more than 4 books.
Such a fun read Jan. 13 2014

Like the first (actually I think there was an issue #0), this comic is surprisingly mature and well written. The artwork is very nice. This is Conan in true form, or at least in true form as I envision Conan: Honorable, bada##, and highly intolerant of those he judges to be villainous or dishonest. Conan is tough without being over the top unbeatable, besting foes with a combination of physical prowess and guile. Pick this up for a great read on a cold day.
