Beautiful - Nawfalq
This .99 cent #0 issue introduces a new series of the Conan stories from Dark Horse. The first and last pages are heartfelt depictions of R. Howard and are seamlessly integrated into the Conan story.
Conan is returning "home" and the reader is introduced to Cimmeria - Land of Darkness and Deep Night. On his way home, Conan encounters a party of raiding Vanir brutes. The artwork for this first fight is excellent. Giorello presents clear, exciting frames. The colorist (Villarrubia) does excellent work here. The color schemes of gray and blue are accented by the vibrant red of blood from spear points and swords. Definitely worth the .99.
