    I can't stress enough how much Truman and Giorello accomplish here in 16 short pages. With a limited amount of narration they skillfully sum up the current state of Conan's disposition, while respectfully putting the first series to bed and swelling interest for the upcoming chapters. It would be easy to pass this off as nothing more than a promotional tool, but it's clear a lot of time and effort went into making the issue a legitimately entertaining read. If this is any indication of how Conan the Cimmerian will read, color me excited. Read Full Review

    A great read for those of us who are familiar with the poem and/or the character and world of Conan, and also a great place to start for new readers of the mythos. Conan the Cimmerian #0, though painstakingly short, is brilliant read from cover to cover. Read Full Review
