“This is the way Conan was meant to be! Howard’s barbarian at his most savage and ruthless. Conan has always been one of my favorite characters in comics and I’ve often referred to the Marvel fare as Conan lite. Ablaze’s Conan full and robust. If you’ve never read the original stories you may have to take it in small doses. But once you’ve gotten used to it by the gods! There isn’t anything better.”- www.OUTRIGHTGEEKERY.COM
