  1. That… that is a cover.

  2. I’ve been enjoying this series a lot so far being a new conan reader, but does anyone else here suggest that this might read better in trade or is everyone enjoying the pacing of the issues?

  3. I added this to my pull list based mainly on the creative team and after the first issue I began thinking maybe I wasnt a Conan person. The second issue sat unread for a week, but then I thought..time to either lose it or love it. While I may not have become a die hard Conan fan in the space of an issue, the second issue really drew me in and I am once again excited to have this on my pull list.

    This is a pretty atypical take on Conan. So far I’m loving it.

    Anybody with a passing interest for Conan could do worse than checking also ROBERT E. HOWARD’S SAVAGE SWORD

    Official blurb:
    “Each eighty–page, perfect–bound issue will showcase the exploits of Howard’s heroes in new comic adventures and restored reprints of classic tales, and include a wide range of bonus material too! Some of these characters have never before appeared in comics–you’ll see them here first, folks! Featuring the work of industry legends and today’s top talent and hottest rising stars, this is a can’t-miss series for fans of action-packed adventure comics!”

    In my opinion a great example of anthology done right. It’s $7.99 but it’s 80 pages and it’s quarterly.

  5. I honestly didn’t think it could happen – but this beat out “Saga” #2 for my POTW. Wood & Cloonan work in perfect harmony here – & I really mean perfect – in a way I haven’t seen in any comic I can remember. This issue pulls you in through both the writing & the art, and keeps you enthralled there till the very last page.

    I was kind of disappointed to see that Cloonan’s skipping the next arc (she’ll be back in #7) – but if you have to go with someone else, James Harren is an excellent substitute.

    I can’t recommend this series highly enough. And I’m really digging the structure, which seems like it’s going to be 3-issue arcs. A strong 5/5!
