Richard Corben illustrates another gripping Connacht flashback, as we witness how Conan's grandfather returned to Cimmeria, found a bride, and tamed his wanderlust in order to become an integral part of his tribe. In Conan's present, Conan has overcome impossible odds and trials to return to the Cimmerian village he grew up in--only to find that much has changed in the years he's been away.

With moody interiors by both Richard Corben and Tomas Giorello, Conan the Cimmerian continues Dark Horse Comics' ex more

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Dec 25, 2008

    I will admit that Conan is not high on my list of must reads, but I've stuck through all six issue of this new series, and have even gone back and picked up a few of the newly released tales from the 1970s. With each issue, the character, time period, and promise of bigger adventures have grown on me to the point, where the title has moved up several spots on my Must Read Pile. Conan the Cimmerian #6 is another good installment of the current reboot of the character, and is good enough to earn 3 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review
