    Cary Nord's work on this title is impressive as always, but since this is largely a talking heads read, there's not really any moments that I can point to with any real sense of excitement. I mean the art tells the story in a clear enough manner, and the credit page discovery of the body got the issue off to a solid start. However, since Conan's expression is pretty much limited to angry, and more angry, the art isn't really called upon to sell the quieter moments with a wide range of emotional reactions, and the lack of action makes this issue a rather ordinary outing when it comes to the art. However, I did enjoy the look of anticipation of the face of the guard, as he prepared to question Conan, and the expression on the noble man when he arrives to discover the body did an effective job of selling the idea that this little man is clearly holding back information. The last page of this issue also manages to nicely carry us into the next issue. Read Full Review
