Finally a Conan worthy of REH 17 mai 2014
Par baikberuang - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The art and story line of this adaptation are superb, especially compared to some of the other recent Conan issues. We see Conan as an old, but still vital man reflecting back on his darkest hour, spinning a tale for a court scribe. The detail, coloring, and formatting are top notch and the story holds up as one of Howard's original classics.

There will, hopefully, be a sequel or two as the story ends only partway through REH's novella, but I'm more impressed by this edition than anything I've seen since Barry Windsor Smith left long ago and that is high praise indeed.

Only the first half of the story, but thrilling nonetheless 11 mai 2014
Par Babytoxie - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Under the title KING CONAN, Tim Truman and Tomás Giorello have been adapting stories of the barbarian adventurer after he had taken the throne of Aquilonia. It's been a great read from volume 1, and KING CONAN VOLUME 3: THE HOUR OF THE DRAGON is no exception. You've read this type of Conan story many times before, even if you haven't read *this* particular one: Conan is captured by his enemies and faces certain death; however, a beautiful girl frees him, enabling Conan to crush said enemies. It's a standard outline for numerous Conan stories, both in comics and in prose. The difference here is that The Hour of The Dragon was written by Conan's creator, Robert E. Howard. What's more, it's the only novel-length original Conan, later published under the title Conan the Conqueror. In the story, Conan's kingdom of Aquilonia is threatened by conspirators who are backed by the sorcery of the resurrected Xaltotun, high priest of Set. With his army defeated, Conan is locked away in a Nemedian prison while his predecessor's heir claims the throne. Aided by the loyal harem girl Zenobia, Conan escapes, fleeing back to Aquilonia with the intent of reclaiming his throne, no matter how many people he has to kill to do it.

Truman has been writing and adapting Conan stories for quite some time now, and with THE HOUR OF THE DRAGON, he pulls out all the stops, giving the reader a thoroughly entertaining adaptation of Howard's novel - or the first half of it, at least. Normally, I'd complain that a writer was taking 12 issues to adapt this story, but Truman's attention to detail, while maintaining a steady pace, was amazing. I've read the original novel numerous times, as well as adaptations in comic format, but that didn't matter. Truman kept my attention from the first page, and when I reached the end of the sixth chapter, I was dying to read more, even though I know exactly what happens next.

Giorello... honestly, what needs to be said? This guy was born to illustrate Conan. Especially effective is the framing sequence of the story, featuring a Conan well into his sixties: gray-haired, bearded, wrinkled, and covered with scars. Even Conan's depiction in the main story looks older than usual. The supporting characters are easily differentiated, settings are carefully rendered, and details abound - this is no rush job. Also, Giorello doesn't hold back during the more violent scenes of the story, with plenty of crushed skulls, dismemberment, and splattered blood to offend the squeamish. Of course, colorist José Villarrubia gives every scene just the right touch.

While Kurt Busiek and Cary Nord were a dream team on Conan, Truman and Giorello have more than proven themselves with the character, and I would be happy with these guys on Conan ad infinitum, especially if we could get more stories of him as king. In fact, this book got me wanting some adaptations of the non-REH novels Conan the Avenger, Conan of Aquilonia, and Conan of the Isles. While L. Sprague deCamp, Lin Carter, and Bjorn Nyberg have their share of detractors, I enjoy their contributions to the saga of King Conan and would love to see more adventures of the character at this period of his life.
Killer adaptation of Robert E. Howard's only novel length Conan story! 22 août 2014

Great, great stuff! Very nice pacing, and while faithful to Howard's vision it also skillfully handles the necessary compromises involved in translating a work of prose into a visual medium like comics/graphic novels. An exciting story of swordsmanship, sorcery, love, and loyalty. Well adapted writing of one of the classic pulp authors of the 20th century, and the *stunning* art/line work by Argentinian artist Tomas Giorello is enthralling. Even the coloring work by Jose Villarrubia bears praise, it's like a well produced high-budget film but in two dimensions. If you have any interest at all in fantasy fiction, comics, art, or just need something fun to read I recommend this highly. I got the Kindle version from Amazon for my IPad , and with the high-res backlit screen and ease of reading by touch, it was great.
Hail Howard, Tim Truman and Dark Horse for such a show 4 juillet 2014
Par The cimmerian - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This King Conan saga is a consensus when it comes to quality, something that is not common in comic series that have been around for some years.
What impresses me the most is not just how the writing of Tim Truman manages to convey Howard`s vision into comic format in a very convincing way. What is jaw dropping is not just Giorello`s art, which translates words into images that resembles the greatness of John Buscema. What is a delight for the eye are not just the myriad of colors Vilarrubia uses to illustrate the wonderful pages of Hour of the Dragon.
The big plus of this series is that these guys are not satisfied with giving us such a blast of a story. They really give the impression that they want to surpass every project they have conceived, leaving the idea that being great is not enough.
Hour of the Dragon has been the best release Dark Horse has put out in the last decade when it comes to Conan and I`m really pleased to be able to follow the team that in years to come will be seen as a standard by which all Conan will be measured.
Keep Hyborea coming!
very good 'Conan' 1 juillet 2014

Any 'Conan' story by Tim Truman is BOUND to be really good (dare I say it) and at least close to the very high bar set by Conan creator, Robert E. Howard. But this one is raised to a whole new level by the art of Tomas Giorello. Giorellos' artwork turns each panel into a portrait worthy of canvas and a frame!!
He's (again, dare I say it?) every bit as good as Frank Frazetta!!!! But in a very different style.
While he doesn't embrace the darkness like Frazetta, his style is romantic, awesome and a joy to look at, and I'm talking about EACH AND EVERY PANEL!!!!!
A match made in heaven.
Please guys, more more more and more.
And a profound 'thank you'.
