    Verdict? Well, even though I remain firmly on the Busiek bandwagon due to his intelligent writing, this is a fun ride for three bucks. Issue #1 is fantasy havoc in finest and most beautiful form, though this is definitely an issue to keep away from the kiddies. I really dont think this will ruffle the feathers of the sensitive types out there, because Lansdale blatantly has his tongue in cheek with Songs of the Dead. Still, if you like your barbarian comics free of blood and sex, Id look for a more wholesome option, such as Groo. But, in my opinion, blood and sex is necessary to adapt Howards original vision of Conan, and I think Lansdale and Truman are dead on in this mini-series, so Ill be back for Issue #2. Plus, I really want to see whats up with the Stygian who hired Alvazar to steal the demon root. The pervert! Read Full Review
