"Robert E. Howard’s Conan the Barbarian,
first brought to comics twenty-five years ago, has an updated look—and
attitude—in this series.
Slashing and hacking at his targets, whether
they’re fellow gladiators or giant spiders, is just the natural course of action
for this Cimmerian, who has much more cunning and intelligence than the corrupt,
corpulent despots who think he serves them. Though he appears to be nothing more
than an ignorant barbarian, he has plans and schemes that belie his unrefined
appearance. And unlike Roy Thomas and Barry Smith’s sullen comic book
Conan, this muscular hero has a sense of
humor that serves him as well as his sword." - ComicBase™ 7.0.
