    Issue 12 ends with a bang and opens the way for Conan's next adventure. As Abit says, Conan is a force of nature who leaves "no path for mere mortals to follow. Just a wake." He's right, and it makes for a hell of a read. The writing and art have been superb for this six-issue arc, and I'm looking forward to seeing where we go next. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Waylon Piercy Mar 26, 2015

    This is a good conclusion to what has been an enjoyable story arc. Van Lente just "gets" the character of Conan in a way previous series writer Brian Wood never did, and the comic is all the better for it. The best part of this issue has to be bitter enemies Conan and Thoth-Amon forced to put aside their differences and work together. The rational-minded (for a sorcerer, anyway) Thoth-Amon's incredulous reaction to Conan's impulsiveness is particularly amusing. The art remains the weak link in this series, however. It has a rough look that suits the tone of the comic, but it frequently appears sloppy, even unfinished, in some panels. Dark Horse has set a high bar for the quality of the art in their various Conan series, and unfortunately, Ching's work simply does not measure up. That said, Van Lente's writing is enough to make this a worthwhile read anyway, and Robert E. Howard fans will not be disappointed. Read Full Review

    The artwork is still top-notch, I love the full page art and double page spreads. The color palette is great. The action is well choreographed and depicted. I really like the way this book looks. Read Full Review
