Conan Volume 1: The Frost Giant's Daughter and Other Stories  Cover

 

Staff Pick

This latest comic incarnation of Conan is fantastic. It stays true to Howard's original tales and easily survives the translation to the graphic. The art is positively amazing. I fell in love with this series immediately; it's better than re-reading the original novels. And did I mention that the art is ill?  I'd recommend this to both comics fans and Conan fans.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When the internationally famous barbarian hero returned to comics, with an all-new fresh start by award-winning writer Kurt Busiek (JLA/Avengers, Astro City) and dynamic artists Cary Nord, Thomas Yeates, and Dave Stewart, the result was instant sell-outs and multiple printings to keep up with the demand. Now Conan's earliest adventures are collected in a handsome 176-page collection. Catch all the action and savagery as he wars with the murderous Vanir, meets the Frost Giant's Daughter, and is taken as a slave by the ancient sorcerers of Hyperborea! This top-selling new series faithfully expands on original author Robert E. Howard's literary creation. Collecting issues #1-#6 and fourteen pages from issue #7 of the ongoing series.

Review:

"Writer Kurt Busiek treats him with the dignified respect due one of the towering figures in fantasy literature...it feels like historians unearthed a vibrant, bloody tapestry. These are, once again, the days of high adventure." Entertainment Weekly

Review:

"Busiek deftly captures the tone of Howard's pulp magazine work, with its combination of brutal action, noble savagery, and the eerie supernatural. The vivid and realistic artwork, lushly colored, matches the storytelling well." Library Journal

Synopsis:

The classic Conan the Barbarian meets Mike Mignolaand#8217;sand#160;Hellboy by way of Norseand#160;mythology andand#160;Icelandic sagas in an epic graphic novel adventure of innocence wronged and vengeance taken.

Synopsis:

"A sword untried is a sword untested,", says one raven to another as they set out to winess the fate of the finest farm in Garmrland and its owner, Barbarian Lord. When he is cheated out of his lands and banished, Barbarian Lord begins a quest for allies and for justice, encountering monsters, ghouls, gods, and mediocre poets along the way.
and#160;
Combining the rich traditions of the Vikings and Nordic lore with sword-and-sorcery-and slyly understated humor-this graphic novel introduces an original hero with classic flair, brought to life in Matt Smith's beautifully drawn, detailed, and action-filled black-and-white illustrations.
