The second arc of Brian Wood’s Conan run begins, and it’s just as good as the first one. Conan and Belit form a plan to rob Argos, the city he barely escaped from back in #1, and it’s a pretty good one, in the vein of Luke and Han dressing up as Stormtroopers and pretending the caught Chewbacca. Conan will pretend to be a prisoner, and while they go through the rigmarole of a trial, Belit’s crew will look Argos. But of course, it doesn’t go to plan, there is no trial and Conan is to be executed at dawn. We all know he’ll get out of it, but the fun is in seeing how, and I’m very much looking forward to #5 to see it. James Harren steps in for Becky Cloonan with this issue, and he does an excellent job, his Conan isn’t as youthfully cocky as Cloonan’s, but he’s still the same wiry character. I particularly loved the double-page spread which showed the architecture and buildings of the city, that was beautiful. Harren is a more than capable fill-in. This book, after only 4 issues, is already my favourite Conan run ever, but then I haven’t read that much Conan. It’s still awesome though.
