A Review: KING CONAN #2

The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of KING CONAN #2 from Dark Horse Comics. The script is by Timothy Truman (from the Robert E. Howard novel THE HOUR OF THE DRAGON), with art by Tomas Giorello, colors by Jose Villarrubia, and lettering by Richard Starkings and Comicraft.

Conan has stolen a small boat and sets out to seek revenge. He is captured and was to be made a slave along with allies of his youth, the Black Corsairs. He leads an uprising and takes command of the ship. Once again the Conqueror sets out to find the black galley that carries the resurrected sorcerer who dethroned him.

Tomas Giorello’s art is incredible; it reminds me of the beautiful work of the late, great John Buscema. It is simply gorgeous. While not much happens in this issue (other than a revolt), you can feel it’s the calm before the impending storm. And I can’t wait to see what’s coming.

KING CONAN #2 is in stores now, or available for ordering at www.darkhorse.com.
