Conan the Barbarian #13 Reviews

Adventures In Poor Taste: 8.5/10 “I enjoyed this first issue immensely. Cut down the middle, it sets up the story with some good fighting and then breaks for some dark mysteries and adventurer traps.”

Big Comic Page: “Jim Zub’s narrative for issue #13 of Conan The Barbarian must have been an utter delight for any fantasy tabletop role-playing fans, what with its feats of forte, ferocious fist-fights and utterly ruinous snares.”

Comic 8/10 “Jim Zub’s script is great (especially in the second half), and the art from Roge Antonio portrays the violence in a tasteful but bloody way. This is definitely the start of something interesting”

Comic-Watch: 9.2/10 “Jim Zub is certainly no stranger to the Conan universe and his masterful writing will lead you on a journey through savage worlds and brutal locals. I was reminded, fondly, of the old Conan tales from the mid-’70s and with every twist and turn I began to regret that it ever had to end.”

Cool Comic Reviews: “Under Jim Zub’s writing, Conan still feels like Conan. He cares not for anything but combat, grog, and women. The art is fantastic also. “

Geeks WorldWide: 8/10 “Zub’s familiarity with Conan and his world is apparent as he eases readers into Conan’s thoughts, demeanor, physicality.”

Graphic Policy: “It’s really cool and feels a bit more accessible to those who might not necessarily be into Robert E.Howard or Conan the Barbarian, a solid first issue that anyone can hop in and enjoy.”

Hero Press: “Beautifully paced, from its introduction right through to the start of the subterranean trials, the adrenaline-drenched Into The Crucible is pure excitement of the most primal kind.”

Kabooooom!: 10/10 “Zub perfectly captures the adventurous spirit of the original Robert E. Howard stories and, with Antonio’s art, waves together a book that feels like you’re watching an old-school Dungeons and Dragons dungeon crawl play out.”

Newsarama: 9/10 “Armed with a keen drive and high adventure fun, Conan the Barbarian #13 keeps the main Conan title on strong legs.”

Paint Monk’s Library: 8.5/10 “Zub and Antônio are off to a great start. Highly recommended.”

Super Powered Fancast: 9.4/10 “The story is entertaining and the stakes are laid out in a way that increases the tension of each moment. Not only is the story gripping, but the climax is sufficiently jarring enough to make me want to see what happens next.”

Weird Science Marvel Comics: 7.5/10 “Overall, this first issue was an entertainingly quick read that will get new readers to the heart of the story fast.”
