I also wish I could have seen more of Tomas Giorello in these past issues. Giorello has filled in for former headliner Cary Nord better than I could have expected. I hate to see him relegated to a few pages a month. Hopefully future issues will change that. This story has cemented a new direction for Conan, and I'm eager to see where the creative team takes our favorite Cimmerian next. Read Full Review
Tm Truman is settling in nicely with this new run. Connacht's story definitely took me off-guard when first introduced, but seeing it completed makes a lot of sense. I give Truman and Dark Horse credit because it's quite unorthodox to have a new series do little with its main character for the first two issues. But Connacht's story touches on two important pieces of criteria: it sets the tone for the entire series, and gives the reader insight into Conan's ancestry. This is not the fun-filled, jovial adventures (and sometimes creepy) adventures that Kurt Busiek and Cary Nord brought us five years ago. Conan's world is colder, more brutal, and mature. It'll be great to see how these series of tales unravel. Read Full Review
