Comic Preview: King Conan: The Conqueror #1

Conan the Barbarian has always been a comic book character for me. I've never read the original pulp stories by Robert E. Howard or even seen any of the films based on the character. I was introduced to Conan via Marvel's two comic series and the large format black and white magazine the Savage Sword of Conan. Dark Horse has held the license for producing Conan comics for a few years now and they are continuing to excel. The creators that they have working on these books continue to produce an incredible experience for readers. What I've seen of the first pages of the upcoming King Conan: The Conqueror, show that quality continuing. With Tim Truman as the writer of the series I was excited before reading a single word bubble, I've long been a fan of Truman. Tomás Giorello is doing the artwork for the issue, I'm not familiar with his work but I'm going to be looking him up after seeing these pages.

King Conan: The Conqueror will go on sale February 26th, 2014. If you are a fan of Conan or quality sword & sorcery I'd add this to your pull list. See the pages below and tell me what you think.
