I recognize the genius of Tolkien and Rowling with their Middle-Earth and Hogwarts but neither has inspired the sequels, prequels and participation by the best and brightest that have followed Robert E. Howard in expanding the saga of Conan in the Hyborian Age from L. Sprague de Camp through Robert Jordan and then the multiple comics and graphic novels of the Marvel pantheon.Where were we? Oh yes, in The Phoenix on the Sword, Conan is no longer a thief or freebooter. He is King of Aquilonia and [...]

Tim Truman's art, as always, rocks.The story seems well-adapted from the original. This volume first appeared as four issues of the King Conan comic book series, so the transitions and the chapter breaks can range from clumsy to dramatic, and include a story-within-a-story framework that is, well, less than desirable for a single volume. All-in-all, still probably my most favorite of the Dark Horse comics.

The art is OK, though one gets the impression Giorello is still going throuhg some growing pains. Too many times are the characters (mostly Conan) facing the reader and seems to be "posing" for our benefit. It has a tendency to detract from the flow. Also, much of the art is presented as spread across two pages, this being a trade paperback, alot of the art is lost in the spine, loosing, in some cases, important details of AN image. This probably didn't happen in the single issues as you can eas [...]

It’s Good To Be the King Or Is It?Plenty has been written about the lives of kings. No doubt, plenty more will be written as time continues its inexorably march onward, and there are lessons still to be learned in exploring the moments that separate the wheat from the chaff. As any king can tell you, there’s something to be said about growing old and looking back on the recklessness of a youth spent learning to rule, but, when you’re King Conan, there’s no doubt going to be many hopeful [...]

Edição belíssima, continuando a saga de Conan Rei - neste caso, reminiscênciasA Fênix na Espada: Conan Rei contando as reminiscências de antes da tomada do trono. Os desenhos e Giorello intercalando as memórias dentro de memórias.

Parece que no puedo resistirme a un Conan dibujado por Giorello y es que le va tan bien el dibujo de este artista que parece hecho a medida, tanto como el color de Villarrubia con el que crea una conjunción perfecta. Ya los disfruté en su momento en “Conan Rey: La Ciudadela Escarlata” y aunque esta historia la publicó Weird Tales anteriormente a la de la ciudadela, vemos personajes reincidentes, como el hechicero.Espada y brujería de la vieja escuela cimeria y un viejo Conan Rey que hast [...]

Competente versão em quadrinhos do conto clássico de Robert E. Howard, a gênese de Conan e de todo o subgênero de Espada e Magia. Mesmo sendo bastante fiel à história original, portanto sem muitas surpresas quanto à trama, a arte de Giorello mostra uma visão vibrante da fantasia sinistra do universo de Conan. É uma versão à altura do legado do Cimério. Porém, mesmo colorida e com belos enquadramentos, a HQ não tem, na dobradinha roteiro e arte, o mesmo vigor do Conan escrito por Ro [...]

I liked it well enough, but probably not as much as the previous one. There was more politics, and more in the way of background things going on, but I found some of the plotting a little confusing and felt as though I was dropped into the middle of something which could have done with a wider explanation.

Tim Truman adapts the classic King Conan story to graphic novel format better than one could imagine. The choice to have elderly Conan himself relate the story to a scribe is a great way to allow us to see the king of King Conan became in his later years. The art from Giorello in these King Conan stories is perhaps the best I've seen from him thus far.

Relectura para uno de los relatos más populares de Robert E. Howard por una dupla artística que ha consolidado su estilo narrativo lejos de la clásica interpretación Marvel.

Stunning artwork. Faithful adaptation of Robert E. Howard's original story. Couldn't ask for anything more!
