    One of the best monthly books out there. It is already starting to cause some waves amongst readers and if Busiek and Nord can keep this up, look for those waves to reach tidal proportions in the future. This issue provides us with a gripping story of revenge, and an interesting peek at the next major arc. Pick this book up, you wont be sorry. Read Full Review

    This issue is a telling display of the impact that art can have on a story, as while the script could make some suggestions about the methods that Conan kills the two cowards, it's the art that responsible for the sheer impact of the deaths, and I have to say the reveal of the second death stands up as one of the most unsettling images I'm seen in quite some time. The art also does a fantastic job of building up the danger that the female assassin poses, as we watch her make her way into the castle, before delivering a telling display of her sheer effectiveness, as she deals out death to the armed guards. My only quibble with the art on this issue would have to be the cover image as while it's a powerful image, the blur effect that is used to convey the speed of Conan's sword swing was robbed the image of a great deal of its impact.
