    In Conan: Exodus, Ribic has given us not only a compelling story of Conan's journey from his homeland to ‘civilization', but also a masterclass in how comic book storytelling is a visual art. The sense of Conan's character being shaped and honed by his experiences in these pages is palpable; Ribic's painted art is variously dynamic, atmospheric, brooding and thoughtful. His depiction of the landscape as almost a separate character or entity in the first half of the story is extremely impressive, and he conveys Conan's determination, strength and relentless self-sufficiency with similarly impressive skill throughout. Put bluntly, this is an extraordinary comic book and well worth your time. Read Full Review

    I quite enjoyed the story and the fantastic artwork. I did feel a bit left out when I was no able to read the minimal dialogue that does occur" but the images really do tell you pretty much all you need to know. If you are a fan of Conan, or even just lovely comic art (or art in general really), then you may well want to jump on board and grab a copy. Read Full Review
