The thrilling, battle-filled finale to Robert E. Howard's "Iron Shadows in the Moon"-and Dark Horse's final Conan the Cimmerian issue! With the threat of pirates and a centuries-old evil at his heels, Conan's troubles triple when he and Olivia are confronted by the jungle creature that's been stalking them. The island where Conan once sought refuge has become a battleground with constant surprises and death in every dark corner. Tim Truman, Toms Giorello, and Jos Villarrubia conclude their adaptation of one of Howard's strangest stories in their final issue of Conan the Cimmerian. Fear not, faithful readers, as this Conan creative team will be returning next year to chronicle the exploits, adventures, and woes of an older King Conan!

    And considering Thomas started the whole "Conan in comic books" thing, that's saying something. Read Full Review

    It's far from great, but this issue is well told from the perspective of Conan's companion Olivia as they journey through the jungle. Conan faces off against a “Great Ape” (and slices off its arm in true Skywalker fashion) before taking possession of a pirate ship and its crew. So.. the next comic is going to be Conan the Pirate? Now that I think about it, maybe I've given Conan just the right amount of attention. What can I say, I prefer my barbarians to have Mok sidekicks and fabulous Sun-Swords. Hit-and-Miss.

    (Oh, and make sure to check out the pin-up gallery at the end. Jeffrey Brown? Art Baltazar? Rob Guillory? Farel Dalrymple? This is one of the strangest collections of artists for a "Conan" pin-up grouping, and there are even more contributors than the ones I mentioned, but it ultimately works. Kudos for not going for the obvious choices, Dark Horse.) Read Full Review
