“This series is just as good as the relaunched Conan has been, with plenty of action, humor and a bit of a surprise at the end. Rubi’s art, combined with the coloring, has a wonderful, painted look to it.” – Eric Sunde, IGN.com
“Rubi and Buccellato must be applauded for the latter wide-screen scenes that vividly recall the imagery that reading Weird Tales often evoked.” – Ray Tate, Comics Bulletin
“If you’re looking for a quick read and a beautiful, sword-wielding warrior, this is your comic!” – ComicCritique.com
This over 400-page omnibus releases in January 2010 for the amazing price of only $29.99.
