I’m not sure I like the writing in this issue. The plot is actually quite cool but the dialog is a little on the silly side. I hope they aren’t shooting for a younger audience with this series. I don’t want to see a glib bubbly Conan full of smirks and jokes. This isn’t a Disney character.

I’m not sure I like the art in this series either. The Conan books always had great art full of detail and lush environments. The cover is great but the pages are a little simplistic and cartoony.

Again, thinking back on it, I liked the plot of this story a lot but the details are lacking both in art and writing.

Story: 4 - Very Good
Art: 3 - Good
