  1. The art reminds me of the art in Clone Wars, a cartoon for kids, and the writing is mostly predictable. I much prefer the Truman/Giorello Conan.

  2. @FreezerBurn  I respect your opinion but I just want to throw out there that I’m completely opposite in that I have been loving the art on this arc/series and I think the writing is great classic adventure storytelling.  I’ve been enjoying it so much that it’s probably top of the stack to read this week.

  3. The art grew on me a bit. I still prefer a lush or gritty style for Conan. This has been good, but occasionally Thomas can’t help himself and adds in more dialogue than needed, reminding you how old school he is.
