Another very good issue of Conan, and I was surprised that it was so good considering there was no action. Well, Conan got some action with Belit, but you know what I’m talking about. That sex-scene was very well done, it was sexual without being sleazy, perhaps because it was drawn by a female artist it felt a bit less exploitative as most comic-book sex-scenes? I dunno, but it was good. Cloonan really is brilliant on this book, there’s the aforementioned sex stuff, but the flash-back with Conan hunting in the Cimmerian Mountains was also excellent, as was everything else. It’s a shame she’s gone for the next 3 issues, I’m not familiar with fill-in artist James Harren, what’s he like? I was confused by the final scene, was Conan seeing visions of the future? If so, what was with the shot of him in what looked like a French Foreign Legion Uniform? I’m not particularly well-versed in the Hyborean Age, but I’m pretty sure there isn’t a society with clothes like that!
