Conan the Barbarian #19 Reviews

But Why Tho: “It’s an excellent beginning to a new arc, with resolutions of previous issues and staging the future obstacles Conan will have to overcome.”

ComicBook.com: “This issue is being heralded as a good jumping-on point for new or returning readers—and for good reason. If Jim Zub, Cory Smith, and company keep up the kind of storytelling present in this issue, then we could be on the cusp of some genuinely great Conan”

Comic Watch: 8/10 “Conan the Barbarian #19 has enough excitement and action to satisfy any reader. This new arc is a perfect opportunity to jump into the series and see what Conan does best: survive!”

Panel Patter: “When Conan growls about how he expresses his faith, it’s pure Howard (and also Zub’s spiritual predecessor, Roy Thomas). Cory Smith’s art is big and bold, which fits the character well, and he’s not afraid to show folks dying in the brutal manner of the text pieces.”

Pop Mythology: “Pick of the Week – The combat, frenzy of ambushes and the heart-pumping moments of the chase that are counter-pointed by those still moments of waiting, foreboding and just counting down the seconds waiting for the right time to strike.”

The Pullbox: 9/10 “Jim Zub’s reign on Conan has been a revelation, and continues to entertain. Reading his books, I’m reintroduced to the glorious Cimmerian barbarian of my youth”
