18.Dec.2009 For the love of Conan!
Over at Boing Boing, Cory Doctorow has a glowing review of Dark Horse’s current Conan series.
Yes, the entire series!
Many who follow this blog will remember I have a slight (which is a generous downgrade of the description my mania deserves) obsession with Conan comics and just thrill at everything that’s been done in the DH series (Hopefully that doesn’t sound too “company shill,” as I was a Conan nut before my tenure at Dark Horse.), so to see another writer and comic fan just gush about this series makes me feel an overwhelming sense of excitement and fanboy kinship.
Doctorow’s take on Conan is just a great read and hits on so many of the key points that make this series a joy to delve into. If my ravings here haven’t turned you on to this great comic, I suggest reading something a less-deranged writer has to say—take a few minutes and give it a look. It’s just one more reminder that you should be a Conan fan.
