2012 Memorable Moment: Brian Wood’s Conan the Barbarian

belit

Call me crazy but I was actually struggling with a desire to not give this comic a chance when I first saw it solicited so many months ago. Even with the powerhouse duo that is Brian Wood and Becky Cloonan fronting the project, I was deeply skeptical. Luckily, I set my preconceived notions aside and picked up the first issue, which presented me with one of my favorite comics out there today.

I get a little pissy when Cloonan is rotated out temporarily, but this comic has been so consistently solid and innovative to a dusty story line that it blows me away every time.
