This volume marks a transitional period in young Conan's life, as he spurns civilization - with its turncoats and legal trappings - and returns to the beloved, brutal country of Cimmeria, where he was born and raised. The dangers found in the snowy mountain passes of his barbaric homeland are a welcome change from the mind games and treachery Conan encountered in the cities of the East, but there are unfortunate lessons in treachery to be learned here, too. When a tentative truce with the Aesir is threatened by the actions of Caollan, the first woman Conan ever loved, Conan again finds himself at the heart of a larger conflict that will test not only his physical strength and cunning mind - but his passionate heart as well.… (more)

After six excellent volumes of Conan adventures, Truman, Giorello, and Corben return the adventurer to his birthplace. Within Giorello's beautifully rendered stories, Truman and famed underground comic artist Corben, creator of the mythical Den, explore the life of Conan's grandfather Connacht. Complete with the appearance of Conan's first love, a meeting with his mother, supernatural nasties, and lots of bloody violence, the rollicking good adventure of Conan Volume 7: Cimmeria offers a new addition to this well-chronicled life.

Muy bueno. Brutal y sangriento -como una historia de Conan debe ser-, pero muy bien escrito y dibujado. Y sutil y melancolico a la vez, aunque usted no lo crea.. De lo mejor de Conan hasta ahora. ( )

Conan: Cimmeria is volume 7 of the excellent Dark Horse Books, Conan graphic-novel series. This volume continues the high standards set by the previous six volumes. Actually, I believe Cimmeria achieves even higher standards than the previous volumes. Truman’s story is complex, but enchanting and captivating. It also provides the reader with a different view of the legendary barbarian. We learn something about Conan’s family and his childhood. The mighty warrior returns to his homeland, Cimmeria, and to his mother. In addition, Truman inserts another story from the distant past about Conan’s grandfather, who was also a ruthless adventurer and mercenary. He skillfully weaves this story around and through the primary Conan story in this book. Conan rescues a previous lover from his youth, who was being forced to marry against her will. His rekindled passion for her propels him to help her, which ignites plenty of the blood-and-guts violence that continuously stalks Conan. However, this volume also presents a more human portrayal of the barbarian. Truman’s story “inspired by the stories of Robert E. Howard” is brilliantly written, and it is enhanced by the exquisite art work by Giorello, Corben and Villarrubia. The entire package is excellent, and a “must read” for all Conan fans. It’s all here, i.e., brutality, suspense, horrific violence, mysterious magical beings, exotic punishing environments, inhumanly evil villains, and surprising tenderness and love. ( )

It was just wonderful returning to Conan's world, to the heroic lands I'd lived in in my imagination as a boy.
