    One thought on “King Conan: The Hour of the Dragon”

    1. As good as graphic novels get. Ridiculously beautiful artwork, fantastic story and an impassioned letter from writer Timothy Truman to the fans of Conan and REH. The King Conan series is the finest series of graphic novels I have ever read.

    2. Believe it or not, I really was stuck on the last page of this comic (graphic novel? it's technically only 1/2 of a novel) for almost a week. I had one picture left to look at when I set it down for travel home, and New Year's Eve, and New Year's Day games with the kid, and then 02 January was the Federal holiday that I discovered I had misplaced the bookBut, onward to A REVIEW!Aged King Conan recalls almost losing his kingdom in his first few years ruling Aquilonia. A trecherous neighboring mon [...]

    3. Yet another spellbinding King Conan book, these rival imo the greatest ever run by Kurt Busiek and Cary Nord. Even if you only have a passing intrest in Conan or any of it's ilk then do yourself a favour and read this book a true classic. It is just the first part in a larger story and one I cannot wait to read.

    4. Nuevo tomo que llega este mes de las crónicas que cuenta el viejo Rey Conan, con el equipo de Truman/Giorello. Esta vez es una historia bastante mas larga de lo habitual y este tomo es solo su primera parte y tendremos que esperar hasta que se publique "Conan Rey: El Conquistador" para conocer el desenlace. Esto también es así en la versión americana de Dark Horse, siendo 2 series de 6 números cada una. Si hace poco era el recuerdo de un gran amor por la reina de la costa negra, lo que emba [...]

    5. From a grim throne fashioned from steel and the cold granite of the earth, far above the mist shrouded mountains of Cimmeria, our indifferent God, a God known as Crom gave us a tale to be remembered. He used a man named Robert E Howard to divine this tale of King Conan. And then, many a fortnight later, from the wilderness of West Virgina came Timothy Truman and his roguish brethren from Dark Horse Comics who came from many far away places - beyond the borders of Koth, past the Vilayet sea and a [...]

    6. The best of the King Conan series so far. There is a lot here which will be familiar to the regular Conan reader, or to be honest, even for those who have just been reading the King Conan series. This seems to be more a product of Howard's original work, and less to do with Truman and Giorello's work. One of the top writers, and one of the better artists to work on these Dark Horse published graphic novels, more so than the previous two volumes you can feel the collaboration working well between [...]

    7. Simply excellent. The best adaptation from Dark Horse to date. The King Conan series is the Conan series to follow these days.Full review:susimetsa/2015/12/

    8. víctima de una conspiración, el capturado Rey Conan deberá escapar desde las mazmorras para recuperar su trono. Relato del canon hyborio que destaca por la aparición de la esclava Zenobia y goza acá de una lograda adaptación, muy potenciada por los lápices de Giorello.
