Recommended to Andrew by: I'm big into music. I'm fairly active on under the name Panza.
This was a brilliant start to a new volume of Conan. I love the artwork and the story was very intriguing. I've read this series a couple times and keep going back to it.

This was also the first time I read any Richard Corben, and I've since become obsessed with his artwork - so bonus points for that.

Truman and Giorello do another great job here. As I've indicated in reviews of earlier volumes this is my first extended experience of Conan, and as weird as it seems to me I've never directly experienced Howard. I've only read the old Marvel Conan (an issue here or there), may be a single complete magazine of Savage Sword about twenty-five/twenty-six years ago, and one Robert Jordan Conan novel. It just seems strange given my compulsion for reading things "in order."

But after the long digressi

The introduction and afterword alone are terrific lessons in the lore and history behind the creation of Conan. Timothy Truman (who's put in time with Creepy) and Giorello are a great team, there's just no two ways about it. Great homage to the poem Cimmeria by REH. An excellent bridge to the epic of Conan's life by having him go home, only to find out that life is just as complicated there as in the shining cities of civilization. Also really dug the werewolf and his role in helping Conan.

As with most readers of this volume, I was desperately hoping for a rebound from the low-point of the series, Hand of Nergal. I continued to be skeptical until the 3rd or 4th sub-arc in this volume, when I found myself completely drawn in, loving the art, loving the characters, and loving the story. This is a tale of a disillusioned Conan returning to his roots, not knowing what he seeks, but knowing he is through with the supposedly wondrous lands of the South. Along the way, he meets foes and ...more

Conan: Cimmeria is volume 7 of the excellent Dark Horse Books, Conan graphic-novel series. This volume continues the high standards set by the previous six volumes. Actually, I believe Cimmeria achieves even higher standards than the previous volumes. Truman’s story is complex, but enchanting and captivating. It also provides the reader with a different view of the legendary barbarian. We learn something about Conan’s family and his childhood. The mighty warrior returns to his homeland, Cimmeria ...more

After six excellent volumes of Conan adventures, Truman, Giorello, and Corben return the adventurer to his birthplace. Within Giorello's beautifully rendered stories, Truman and famed underground comic artist Corben, creator of the mythical Den, explore the life of Conan's grandfather Connacht. Complete with the appearance of Conan's first love, a meeting with his mother, supernatural nasties, and lots of bloody violence, the rollicking good adventure of Conan Volume 7: Cimmeria offers a new add ...more

Tim Truman and a team of artists continue the great Dark Horse run on Conan, telling a story of the barbarian's return to Cimmeria interspersed with tales of his grandfather's sometimes-parallel journeys. It provides interesting texture to the character and fleshes out the land of Conan's birth. Truman quotes directly from Robert E. Howard to establish that he's working in homage to the original author while adding his own elements to the myth of Conan. Fine stuff.

The new Conan comic series does good justice to the Robert E. Howard stories. While the art does come and go in quality at time, overall it is a good. The adaptations of the original stories is well done. The fill in stories are also well done and follow the flow of the Character's life as written by Howard. Recommended to comic fans and Very recommended to Howard and Conan fans.

Conan returns to his homeland where he hears tales of his grandfather's exploits (Grandad's tales of visiting the civilized lands were what sent Conan off adventuring), meets his first love again and discovers Cimmerians can be as cruel and dishonorable as anyone in the South. A very good entry in this latest Conan comics series.

The last few graphic novels in this series were really disappointing but this one was great. Everything seems and story. I especially liked the choice of an alternate artist to draw the interspersed flashback stories about Conan's grandfather. The artist had a weird style...not what you would expect for a Conan comic.

Darkhorse Comics adaptation of Conan the Barbarian.

Some of the stories are adaptation of some of Robert E. Howards best stories, others are original stories by the Darkhorse Writers. A very nice collection of stories if you like the sword and sorcery genre.

A very good volume, after some of the so-so writing of the last couple. Truman writes a solid Conan narrative, incorporating the important elements.

Muy bueno. Brutal y sangriento -como una historia de Conan debe ser-, pero muy bien escrito y dibujado. Y sutil y melancolico a la vez, aunque usted no lo crea.. De lo mejor de Conan hasta ahora.
