I don't like you, Roy. Terrible writing, which consists mainly of bland cheese and descriptions of the action already told by the art because, you know, when anyone is grabbed by a monster the first thing they're going to say is, "I have been grabbed by a monster," because terror and death make you state the obvious, and because if you're reading a comic book you must be a thirteen year old moron who only wants to see swords and boobies, right, Roy? Go to hell, Roy. This is the sort of worse-than-fan-fiction writing that always made me hate comic books when I was younger. So is the art; it's plastic, ugly, juvenile, and supremely boring. I don't like you either, Mike. I have Thomas' original Conan series but I doubt I bother with it after reading his newer work, if only because you'd expect someone to improve over their exceedingly long career, but that's apparently not so is it, Roy?

Conan: Road of Kings by Roy Thomas (writer), Mike Hawthorne, John Lucas, Dave Stewart, Dan Jackson, and others. This is volume 11 of the Dark Horse Books Conan graphic novel series. It collects volumes one through six of Dark Horse Comics monthly Conan: Road of Kings series. This series features the writing of the legendary Roy Thomas who helped bring Conan to comics. It also features the masterful art work of Mike Hawthorne, John Lucas, Dave Stewart, Jason Gorder, Dan Jackson and others. The art work is maybe a bit edgier then that of most of the previous volumes in this Dark Horse graphic novel series. However, it is fantastic and stunningly illustrates the barbaric characters and savage environments of the story. Although to me the story seemed to portray a slightly more thoughtful and caring Conan than he was portrayed in previous volumes of this series, it was extremely well written, compelling, and very enjoyable. Conan is returning the beautiful Olivia to her wealthy father and expecting a generous reward for the deed. However, the barbarian is still thieving and killing two legged, tentacled and otherwise endowed monsters and villains throughout this very enjoyable journey on the Road of Kings. ( )
