Book Description

Oct. 18 2005 Conan (Dark Horse) (Book 2)
The critically acclaimed and award-winning creative team behind the runaway-hit revival are back with a brand new adaptation of one of Conan creator Robert E. Howard's best-known tales.

Award-winning writer Kurt Busiek and artists Cary Nord and Dave Stewart render the glorious suspense of Howard's beloved "The God in the Bowl" in all its terrifying detail, as well as introducing not only Conan's most famed adversary, Thoth-amon, but a new female foil to Conan's exploits—Janissa the Widowmaker, bound by a pact to a witch who has sinister plans for Conan. Collecting issues #7, #9-#14 of the Dark Horse series.

* "Writer Kurt Busiek treats him with the dignified respect due as one of the towering figures in fantasy literature ... it feels like historians unearthed a vibrant, bloody tapestry. These are, once again, the days of high adventure."—Entertainment Weekly

* "Conan is an action-packed spectacle, a barbarian blockbuster with a brain, and an epic as intelligent as it is visually stunning."—Wizard Magazine

5.0 out of 5 stars Crom's Teeth! Feb. 7 2006
By Kurt Ellmauer - Published on Amazon.com
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...

4.0 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 Amazon.com
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.
5.0 out of 5 stars Conan Leaps from the Pages June 25 2014
By gamer dude - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A must have for Conan fans, even if you are not really into the whole graphic novel thing. The artwork is fantastic, and the stories are pulled from the original Conan stories of Robert E. Howard. These Volumes really bring Conan to life.
4.0 out of 5 stars Just as Nice as a Savage Sword issue May 29 2014
By Dennis Smith - Published on Amazon.com
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.
5.0 out of 5 stars Just as good as volume 1 May 6 2014
By Glenn - Published on Amazon.com
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.
