HASH(0xa2dfe534) out of 5 stars 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...

HASH(0xa2dfe588) out of 5 stars 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.
HASH(0xa2dfe864) out of 5 stars One of the best graphic novels I have ever seen Oct. 5 2012
By The Reviewer Formerly Known as Kurt Johnson - Published on
Format: Paperback
In this second volume of the series, Conan's trail has now taken him to Nemedia. But, there's a lady assassin on his trail. Conan fears no one, but little does he realize that this beautiful woman is one of the most potent warriors that he has ever met. Worse, she is in the service of a fearsome witch called the Bone Woman. Powerful people are fighting a war like chess masters at a table, but trying to use Conan as a pawn can be a terrible mistake!

I found this to be a wonderful graphic novel. The stories were interesting, really capturing my idea of Conan. The illustration work was great, serving to really bring the story to life. This is one of the best graphic novels I have ever seen, and I give it my highest recommendations!
HASH(0xa2dfed8c) out of 5 stars Much later volumes simply can't compare to these earlier ones! Jan. 6 2016
By Amazon, Cue Ms. Ort! - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Purchased this for my partner after we had a long stint playing AoC when it first started up (before it degraded and we lost interest over time), then started running our own homebrew RPGs based in Howard's world, and reading all of Howard's original stories of the same. These first series with Kurt teamed up with great, gritty art style are great. Later on in the series it degrades in quality, both in writing and incredibly so in art at a few points, but I'm hoping eventually it'll pick up again and mirror the style of art and writing used in these beginning volumes, because they are second to none!
HASH(0xa2dfe648) out of 5 stars Best "Bowl" yet !!! Feb. 16 2012
By Kyoshi - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After reading Robert E. Howard's ..."God in the Bowl" and other variations- some
altering the antagonist (male/female) looking for excitement- by changing the characters or content- This is MY FAVORITE- R.E.H. would be proud of this. Close to the original story (and ever true to the theme) Barbarism "Man's Natural State." We can see right through the "foolishness" and hypocrisy of civil government. As an "art piece" -excellent- Story superb- character development-
Welcome "Janissa" Conan's catnip? or Wolf's Bane? -Bowl Rocks-
