Well, I don’t normally like to read Marvel Comics these days, but I decided to give the new Conan the Barbarian a chance and I have to say, I was decently surprised by this comic.
I half came into this thinking Conan would act like a pansy or beaten down boy, being pushed to the side in his own book, being portrayed as a “mitch” in his own book.
BUT I was absolutely wrong.
This book has a great start with great action and great art.
This comic takes us through the life of Conan setting up the book for possible story lines. I wont spoil anything at all here, but we get a few surprises and of course we get to see him being treated like a man should be treated!
In the end, I would highly recommend picking this book up and seeing where it goes.
Is it only a matter of time before Marvel gives it “the treatment”? I certainly hope not, because I miss the days of when you think of Conan as the brutal strong ’80s stereotype of Arnold running around killing bad guys and laying women when he wanted!
Man, I miss the ’80s!
