    Brian Wood is in my top three of current favorite writers in the industry today. He continues to due a stand up job with delivering Conan and making us all believe in this under 25 year old inexperienced warrior that will one day become king. Issue #11 is definitely a critical issue in the Conan run as he questions if its time to let Belit go or risk becoming sick himself while trying to save her. I am hoping to see Belit stick around a bit more but if Wood is planning to go into another faze with Conan then "The Death" arc would be a perfect exiting point for Belit. Theirs plenty of untold Conan tales to tale before we hit Brian Woods 25 issue run and I am looking forward to it. Read Full Review

    Brian Wood has been exploring multiple facets of Conan's personality ever since this book started, and this issue in particular showcases his ability to mine the human side of the protagonist while keeping him… well, barbaric. Declan Shalvey is a perfect companion in this take, and it will be a shame to see him go. This ongoing is the Conan comic for those who never considered themselves Conan fans — and has the potential to turn them, by Crom. Read Full Review

    And I really, really want Conan and Belit to head to sea and do some pirating. We got a glimpse of that in issue #10, and it was awesome. But here we are again, docked in port.  Read Full Review

    After eleven issues I have to admit I am rather enjoying this turn of events. A plague has struck down Conan's comrades and hope looks bleak for them. This concern weighs heavy on the Cimmerian's brow. As is visible in the ponderous art and the gloomy writing. Like I said this might not be the Conan I know or a lot of Robert E Howard fans know. But after so many issues one thing is certain. This is indeed Conan. Perhaps a younger stupider Conan. But Conan all the same. Read Full Review

    This might not be the best issue to jump on to the series, but if you’ve been reading it then you’ll enjoy it. It’s nothing spectacular, but it’s a good continuation of the story with strong character development. Its main purpose was to set the series up for the next issue and for that I will definitely be back. Read Full Review
