    KING CONAN #2 is an excellent character piece showing how an aging Conan, burdened with kingship and fatherhood, struggles to reconcile his old ways with his new life. Aaron organically weaves in a third mystery into the two introduced in the first issue while keeping the narrative clean, straight, and thoroughly engaging. The excellent writing is buoyed with excellent art, particularly through the use of dramatic shadow and accent coloring. Read Full Review
