    On one hand this preview issue does little more that reaffirm the ideas that I already had in place when it comes to the character of Conan, as it essentially paints the picture of an ancient warrior who traveled the country with a big sword, hacking and slashing his way through anyone who was silly enough to get in his way. However, the stunning art of Cary Nord, and the idea that Kurt Busiek, a proven storyteller in my book, will be this book's regular writer, is enough to leave me willing to pick up the upcoming monthly series. This is a very enjoyable preview of Conan's world, and while it doesn't give us much insight into the character himself, Kurt Busiek only had sixteen pages to work with, so perhaps a general overview is the better approach, as this is essentially performing the same job as a movie trailer, and in that sense this issue sets up a pretty tantalizing picture.
