A new arc opens, and our next Robert E. Howard story adaptation begins! With Conan barely having enough time to get his brain and body in gear after surviving the Ilbars Massacre, he comes across Shah Amurath in the wetlands near the Vilayet Sea. After running into the shah and a fugitive slave, Conan embarks on his next quest: laying low on a remote island until the military heat in the region is off of him. However, the gods tend to enjoy putting Conan in precarious situations, and our beloved barbarian is soon enmeshed in pirate politics and a centuries-old mystery! Just how did those huge iron statues get to this island in the Vilayet Sea more

    Despite not being a huge Conan fan, I still enjoyed this comic. I liked that Conan's still recovering from the massive battle in the last arc yet he can still kick butt. It's great having a continuation and some closure while also setting the stage for the next arc. The "island" in question could make for a very interesting stage in this next arc. If you're a Conan fan or simply love swords and violence, you should already have plans to pick this up. If you're looking to give Conan a try, it's a new arc so you can jump right in.
