    As it's written by Mr Bunn, I am definitely going to assume the latter and it succeeded in his plan; I missed the first 2 issues without concern, but I am certainly not going to miss any more of them, even if I have to put up with the thought bubbles! Read Full Review

If you like Sword and Sorcery, grim-visaged mercenaries and bloody sword action, you'll find lots to love here. Read Full Review

    Conan the Slayer #3 is a well-paced book with solid art with some standout panels. It contains three storylines which all provide the audience with a different level of suspense. I have to say that after this issue, I'm convinced that the storyline and art style are headed in the right direction. Read Full Review
