  1. The last King Conan mini, Scarlet Citadel, was spantakularly awesome. This one might be heading in the same direction, although it started a might slow.

  2. Yeah, I read the Scarlet Citadel right before reading #1 of this mini and thought they were equally as good. Felt as if it were all one big series as opposed to distinct mini-series. Great story, art, letters/extras, just quality stuff overall.

  3. I can’t wait for this. I love this team. Truman’s writing, Giorello’s art, and Villarrubia’s coloring are all just excellent. The cover looks dynamite too.

  4. Wow. Some jaw dropping art in this one. The story is way decompressed but the art makes it work.
