    Savage Sword of Conan feels like the kind of book that would not only appeal to diehard fans of the Cimmerian, but new readers looking for a jumping-on point for this legendary staple of pulp sword-and-sorcery. Duggan and Garney seem to really relish this storyline, and are delivering some of their best work in recent memory trying to do Conan justice. If this first issue is any indication, the Savage Sword of Conan is sharp as a tack, and a fitting addition to any comics fan's literary arsenal. Read Full Review
