    Whoever the artist is, I want more. More of this story. More of the story Brian Wood is telling. This is no longer Robert E. Howard's Conan, this is Brian Wood's Conan. And it is good. Read Full Review

    The creative team have done a fantastic job so far. The question is whether Conan the Barbarian will lose any momentum as it takes on a new artist and begins exploring less familiar territory and expanding the original story. So far, Wood has given no reason to doubt him. Read Full Review

    Overall this a great book, the story is trudging along nicely and its building on what has happen in the last two issues and now we are just getting to the meat and potatoes. I am really looking forward to what happens to our brave adventurer, and how he is going to deal with the consequences of this unholy union. Read Full Review

    The second half of this dynamic creative duo, Becky Cloonan, brings some strong art to this book that aids immensely in the story Wood is crafting. Many times in work that is not creator owned it feels like the artist and writer are out of sync but that is not the case with this book. Wood knows Cloonan's strengths and leans on her capable hands to tell a lot of story through the nuance of a panel with no dialogue or only inner monologue while the events of the “real world” drive the story forward. Cloonan's art style is a great fit for this story and this is a prime example of two creators that are in sync and telling an enjoyable tale. Read Full Review
