Good News, Conan Survived the Last Issue!
A new arc but the story continues from the last one.
The GoodI've recently started getting into the Conan comics. What kept me away in the past was the idea that you knew what would happen. Conan would fight (bloody violent battles) and win in the end. Then repeat. I joked when I reviewed the last issue that we didn't know if Conan would survive after his "defeat." Conan fans can rest assured knowing that he is back. Even though this is a new arc, the story does pick up from last issue. We see a battered Conan ready to get revenge.
What keeps this from being just another "Conan defeating everyone" story is it's not just about Conan. The first few pages serve to tell us about an "old legend" that is bound to cause some problems for Conan when he arrives on "the Island."
The art captures Conan's essence and Jose Villarrubia's color are something to look at.
