    Exodus, the title story, is a fun (albeit not entirely successful) experiment in wordless comics from Esad Ribić. Frank Tieri's Savage Sword of Conan #12 was soaked in gore but incredibly dull. Seemed like they just needed a fill-in for a contractually obligated 12th issue of that now-cancelled series. King-Size Conan's highlight is the Roy Howard / Steve McNiven story. Most of the rest was quite good, but I did not dig the Steve DeKnight story and the Jesus Saiz art is in a heavily digital/phot Exodus, the title story, is a fun (albeit not entirely successful) experiment in wordless comics from Esad Ribić.

    Although I really like John Milius’s 1982 film adaptation, I am well-versed in the world of Conan the Barbarian created by Robert E. Howard. When Marvel reacquired the rights after fifteen years of Dark Horse publishing the comics, this was a perfect opportunity to delve more into the Cimmerian by reading Jason Aaron and Mahmud Asrar’s run, which is twelve issues of violent fantasy glory. Whilst I await for that creative team to do King Conan, I picked up this trade that collects one-off stories Although I really like John Milius’s 1982 film adaptation, I am well-versed in the world of Conan the Barbarian created by Robert E. Howard. When Marvel reacquired the rights after fifteen years of Dark Horse publishing the comics, this was a perfect opportunity to delve more into the Cimmerian by reading Jason Aaron and Mahmud Asrar’s run, which is twelve issues of violent fantasy glory. Whilst I await for that creative team to do King Conan, I picked up this trade that collects one-off stories of the Cimmerian’s adventures. Beginning this volume is Conan the Barbarian: Exodus #1, a pitch-perfect one-shot silent issue written and illustrated by Esad Ribić. After fifteen winters, the young Conan sets forth from his homeland to see the world for the first time, surviving and fighting his way through the elements, animals and his fellow humans. With the only dialogue presented in some kind of Nordic script, Ribić is all about the visual storytelling that shows how Conan is feeling during numerous situations. There is violence as one would expect from Conan, but the comic’s true strength is its painterly atmosphere. The next story is Savage Sword of Conan #12 by Frank Tieri and Andrea Di Vito, in which Conan befriends a little girl, who then gets kidnapped by a mysterious demonic sect. Whilst Di Vito’s artwork is gritty and efficient in representing this brutal world of cleaving and demonic possession, the message of the story is “don’t judge a book by its cover” with Conan realising it through violence. Last year marked the 50th anniversary of Conan comics and Marvel celebrated with King-Size Conan #1, compiling a number of short stories by numerous creators, who celebrate the fictional history of this legendary character. Although you have known creators returning to the Hyborian Age like Roy Thomas and Kurt Busiek, whilst TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman writes and draws his first ever Marvel comic here, the stories overall range from good to alright, as well as being an exercise for numerous artists showing their A-game in their take on this fantasy world. If this trade had just been Esad Ribić’s Exodus, I would have given it the full five stars, but there are the remaining stories that differ in terms of quality, one star is lost. Whether or not you’re entirely on board with Marvel is handling Robert E. Howard’s creations, when they are used right, it’s really good and this book delivers for the most part.

    Opening/title story of Exodus is beautifully drawn by Esad Ribic. Worth the price of admission. Some of the other tales are less compelling but ultimately give the reader a good look at Conan from different times. The Roy Thomas and Steve McNiven story is also worth highlighting.
