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.
One of the best graphic novels I have ever seen Oct. 5 2012
By Kurt A. 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!
Best "Bowl" yet !!! Feb. 16 2012

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-

This creative team succeeds where most others in the past have failed. They interpret a true to his original stories Conan while telling stories in between that feel right at home in the universe Howard created. the plots are interesting. The art and lettering and inking all create the right Conan feel and immerse you in the world. This team gets it and it is a must read and buy for any Conan fan.
