Conan The Barbarian #7 (Clonan Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sun Aug 12, 2012 2:46 pm

Conan and Belit return to Cimmeria, and Becky Cloonan returns to the title. This was another very strong issue, and although it wasn’t as action-heavy as the last few, it continued in it’s excellent use of narrative captions. Wood’s voice here really does remind you of fantasy fiction, and everything is lent an epic feel. I did feel however that Wood could have made the reason for Conan’s return a little clearer, people were talking around the imposter Conan before we really knew what was going on, and it was confusing. Sometimes the best way of telling a story is just to be linear, shocking I know. But it’s a mild complaint, by the end of this issue we know what’s going on, there’s a dude going around and pillaging Cimmerian villages whilst pretending to be Conan, so he has to stop him. Also interesting in this issue was the way in which Wood depicted Belit, and her frustration at not being taken seriously by the Cimmerians, she is being given real depth here, she’s not just some sex-pot in a chainmail bikini, she is a proper character, which is good to see.
