  1. I’ll be interested to see how Roy takes to this slightly more modern spin on Conan. Also I believe this is the beginning of a full transition from doing monthly ongoing Conan to more of the Hellboy model of a series of minis. Hope that keeps the art top notch, as that is what makes Conan work, in my opinion.

  2. I’m okay with this going minis like Hellboy as long as it continues to come out.

  3. Flipped through this at the store and then immediately bought it…the art is gorgeous!  I’m definitely giving this one a shot, I hope the story is good.

  4. @TexasZombie99 – I’m with you completely. Flipped through it while in line at the shop and grabbed it on a whim because of the art. Can’t wait to read it.
