"Robert E Howard's Savage Sword" anthology continues to be the best collection of material put onto the stands today. It's all relatively similar in style and tone and yet each tale is able to find new corners of the Howard mythos to plumb and turn into four color gold. If you like Howard you should definitely be here. If you like good comics you should also show your support for some great examples in a presentation model that needs your money to survive. Be a champ and show your love on this book; it'll love you back. Read Full Review
And finally comes Conan. There is something primal about Conan. He dominates the book as soon as he steps on the page. You get the feeling that Conan would easily take down everyone else in this book without dinging his sword raising a sweat. Paul Tobin and Wellington Alves do the Conan story The Jewels of Hastern, and do it well. I havent heard of either Tobin or Wellington, but they get right into the heart of Conan with a story that's all blood, women, jewels and strange gods -- the way a Conan story should be. Artist Wellington did a great job on the armor and castle setting of the story, and Tobin leaves the story on the edge of a climax, leaving the reader wanting to flip the next page but being forced to wait until the next volume of this anthology comes out.
