This series seems to be getting better to me. The flow of each story is enjoyable, and the artwork is very well done. There are some interesting characters in this book that are not exactly predictable - I found that several times different results happened then I was expecting.

I really enjoy Roy Thomas' essay at the end of the book, explaining the back scenes of the industry, and what was going on when these books were written. ( )

Good solid Conan stories from Thomas, Smith, Moorcock, Kane, & Buscema. ( )

I find these Conan graphic novels far more accessible and amusing than the originals by Robert E. Howard. They are well drawn and plotted. The first story in this one, 'A Sword Called Stormbringer' is really an Elric story by Michael Moorcock, with Conan almost as a secondary character (the story is not necessarily the less enjoyable for that). Of course Elric and Conan fight and of course neither is the victor, though Moorcock does not go so far as to claim Conan as an aspect of his Eternal Champion. The rest of the stories involve Conan washed ashore on a mysterious island ('The Gods of Bal-Sagoth') and fighting as a mercenary on two sides of a holy/mercantile war. Very enjoyable. ( )
