    Conan the Barbarian #21 is a great comic book, that goes beyond the mandate of the traditional adventure yarn to deliver something that's absolutely worth your attention. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    I don't know why the Black Stones is so different from the rest of the story arcs Wood had done, but I am sure enjoying it. This issue is an upswing on the roller coaster ride that is Conan the Barbarian: Queen of the Black Coast. Read Full Review

    Maybe this is too harsh and, being a fan of this run and Brian Wood, it probably is. But this issue and this arc as a whole just didnt work for me. Some people might have loved it and more power to them, but it was almost a chore to get through the last issue of Black Stones and thats not something that can be said often with Woods Conan workor any of his work for that matter. At the end of the day, its going to be great to get back into the REH story and reach the conclusion thats been building for two years. Wood has had a good run up to this point, and its going to be interesting to see how he finishes his adaptation of one of the best stories to come from Conan creator, Robert E. Howard.
