I have also come to the conclusion that I must simply ignore Howard canon pretty completely for this series. Cover: 4 Stars, best cover Ross has done for this series so far. A beautiful rendering of the Cimmerian superimposed over old Savage Sword covers. A bit of narration here would have explained the actions and better served the story. This month we have another beautiful image of Conan, and this time he is locked in combat, Belit at his side, and it has nothing to do with the current story in Savage Sword. It feels like we are getting a good low fantasy setting with this series.
That is a good thing. I still like the interior art, and I still think it lends itself to the savage nature of this title. February 13th and the debut issue of the new Savage Sword of Conan!

This may play much better in a longer format collected series. One of the things I liked about things was the rise and fall.
Nice Conan moment smashing an enemy with an improvised weapon. The comic portion had some nice elements. The art by Garney is different from the Barbarian art. I might wait for all 12 parts then read this. I fall on the side of liking it and feeling it fits the savageness of the title.

It may have too much to be honest, but to that end I would rather have too much than too little. Make sure you don't miss a single post and subscribe by e-mail today!

While the barbarian grips steel, ready to split the giant reptilian face in two, his senses clear and standing before him is Koga Thun, flanked by two female acolytes each with flames emanating from one of their hands. Ends with some hypnotic sorcery. The only dent I can find in the latest issue is one that may be the niggling of a longtime comic reader.

But I'm really excited for next issue. Till next time, don't forget to Keep it Weird! The story within includes a delicious taste of the villainy of Koga Thun and even while they escape, Conan and his new allies feel his presence pounding in their souls and Suty pounding in his veins. Apr 15, 2019 I absolutely loved the story here and so far has been one of my favourite Conan stories this year, however as some other people have stated which i definitely agree with is the fact that so far Menes is a bit of a boring character with no real compelling plot points. We have a strong first issue and I am very much looking forward to seeing where things go. As Conan leads the way, seeing visions shared to only him by the map in his head, they plunge forth - and straight into a waiting crowd of undead.
Back up feature: Placeholder 3 Stars. If you have questions or comments don't forget to hit me up on , , or! I found that it moved along at a pretty good clip and I ran out of comic before I wanted to. It may be a small quibble and maybe narration is a lost art, but in this case it could have served as a great help. The coloring is excellent, with the line work supporting it more like a painting in a lot of panels vs colored in comic panels. The trio again gather to plot the battle against Koga Thun and his plan to find the map and ancient weapons buried under the city which have evaded his grasp despite decimating the town through magic and sheer force.

Although i absolutely loved the character Sutty and am sad about his death, i like the idea that the writers are not in fear of killing this well-liked characters in order to push the plot forward and create a realistic world. If not for the dumb escape-trap scene, I may have given this five stars. Overall I clearly liked the start of this new offering from Marvel, I feel we have the beginnings of a new adventure, and that new adventure is supported very well by not only the style of art that Garney is producing but also by the colouring being added by Isanove. Lots of talk about Crom and lack of caring.

I thought this was a solid issue with it's biggest weird point for me being the cover. It spans 19 pages of panels, which is precisely what the the last Conan The Barbarian ran as well as the previous Savage Sword. Axe overhead to crush his foes while he grips one by the neck. I find this to be on the weird side. I think either you like Ron Garney's art and find that it fits this story, or you do not. Koga Thun then lays his twisted hands on Conan and peels back the layers in his brain, searching deeper and deeper for the map. There was a contrived escape scene that detracts from it.
While she struggles to escape, Conan joins the fray, unarmed save for his environment. Beyond that the interior art was good and the story was decent, although it still has some elements I find odd, but nothing completely story breaking. Combined with Richard Isanove's color we get a wonderful world painted for us that is dark and grim. Make sure you don't miss a single post and subscribe by e-mail today! The sorcery on display is fitting to the genre however, so we aren't seeing fireballs shooting off left and right, or wizards casting magic missile. I would really like to see some covers that, at least, tie tangentially into the story within the pages. Super fast paced, but fun.
