The Sword begins to Savage itself 23 janvier 2011
Par D. Lotempio - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Volume 8 of Dark Horse's Savage Sword of Conan chronicles a period when the book was slightly aimless. None of the stories were linked and they occurred during an indeterminate time in Conan's life, although clearly after his entry into civilization and before his term as king. They don't particularly feel like Robert E. Howard stories either and, in the case of two villains, they begin to veer into more typical super-heroics. Consequently this Volume is a mix of bad to entertaining.

The opening two-parter could have been an excellent story if Gil Kane did the whole thing but the inkers just kill it. The art was allegedly lost in the mail and required several inkers to get it prepared to meet publication. It has no visual flow and the inkers almost seem to be fighting Kane's storytelling. Plus someone changes the hair color of the lead female between the two issues. Definitely one of the dregs of SSOC.

Once you get through the dreck, the volume has some fun stories. The Armor of Zuulda Thaal is a tour-de-force for the Fleisher, Buscema and Chan team. The Isle of the Hunter is a perfectly adequate version of The Most Dangerous Game, but probably would have looked better if Nerbes didn't soften Buscema's pencils. This would have been a great solo Buscema story. The Gamesmasters of Asgulan is a bit silly and saved by Alcala's lush art. The Devourer of Souls is one of the stand-out stories. It's a gripping adventure and introduces one of the great Marvel Conan villains, the Devourer. I remember wanting to see more of this imposing character and was delighted to see him return a few months later. Forest of Fiends demonstrates two things: 1) a good Conan story need not focus entirely on the Cimmerian as several supporting characters all play important roles and get plenty of page time; and 2) if you're not going to have Buscema inked by Chan, Alcala or himself, you'll get pretty good results if you at least pair him with someone with a stronger inking style like Pablo Marcos. Nerbes and Redondo unfortunately blunt the impact of Buscema's work with their softer inking and Marcos is more than willing to deliver that impact even if he overpowers it. The Jeweled Bird features the return of my favorite Marvel Conan villain - Captain Bor'aqh Sharaq, the most ruthless and indomitable of Conan's human enemies. Bor'aqh was already in a rarefied club of returning human enemies but he cheated, stole and killed his way to the top very quickly. Mind you, the giant cat and moth and the rotating inkers make the story a little goofy ....but Bor'aqh's hatred and vileness provides sufficient balance. Lastly, you have The World Beyond The Mists which features the introduction of Conan's alternate world double Konar as well as the return of the most inept clan of assassins this side of The Hand - The Brotherhood of the Falcon.

In retrospect, it's amazing to see the breadth of Fleisher's stories. He has pastches of classic stories, soul devouring monstrosities, two stories featuring twin woman warriors, alternate worlds, magic armor and ... a giant cat whose gazes turns you to glass. While some of the stories lack the artistic excellence of previous volumes, you're sure to be entertained.

Almost forgot one disappointment. Dark Horse reproduces some double-page pin-ups but my volume has a lot of gutter loss because of the glued binding. It's a bit of a drag but they don't interfere with the stories.

Conan Loses The Plot 26 mars 2014
Par Slokes - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Conan battles everything from a worm-eating demigod to a laser cat, but proves unable to overcome limp storycraft in this collection of graphic tales.

Collecting nine issues that were originally published monthly by Marvel Comics in 1983, Vol. 8 is the second with writer Michael Fleisher writing most of the stories. Back in Vol. 7, Fleisher showed an admirable willingness to play a bit with the Conan formula and shake up reader expectations. Here in Vol. 8, the stories get weirder, the storycraft shakier, and Conan ever-farther from the center of things.

Take "Devourer Of Souls." Conan is a mercenary with an army laying siege to a castle. Inside, the Devourer and his sorcerer-master await the coming of a time where a great jewel will expose humanity to the depredations of the Devourer's kin. The Devourer shoots lightning, teleports, and kills soldiers en masse, so why are he and the sorcerer allowing themselves to be stuck inside this castle under attack? It makes as much sense as Conan breaking ranks to sneak into the castle for something to steal and stumbling upon the unguarded jewel, and as much sense as Conan then being accused by his comrades of being a spy. Naturally, those things happen, too.

Really, how good can a Conan story be where Conan spends much of the story locked in a box? Not very. "Devourer Of Souls" doesn't even give Conan much of a role in the final confrontation, something it has in common with other stories here.

Conan still kills people, though. You can count on that. Fleisher changes that up here, too, though; having him heave a sword to transfix a foe from a distance not once but four different times in this volume. I don't know about you, but it struck me as a pretty sissy way for our brawny Cimmerian to operate.

Elsewhere in this volume, you get other problems. "Daughter Of The God-King," an opening two-parter, has a decent princess-rescue story that simply gets too convoluted as Fleisher keeps throwing in left-field plot complications. The last story here, "World Beyond The Mists," thrusts Conan without rhyme or reason into an alternate universe featuring his evilish double Konar. It reminded me of that "Star Trek" episode where Spock has a beard, but that was fun. This just drones on, rather grimly, to its nonsensical end.

Fleisher repeats himself a lot here, like serving up surprise endings with characters turning out to be not what the story leads you to believe. This would work better if Fleisher made these characters interesting in the first place. He also brings back his favorite villain, Captain Bor'aqh Sharaq, even though he was last seen in Vol. 7 being swallowed by a demon. Captain Sharaq is still in business, though, and still called "captain" though his ship sailed long ago. Burning for revenge against Conan, he escapes his hellish afterlife (a simple matter of blowing a hole through it) to go find him.

Captain Sharaq was a good villain the first time, back in Vol. 7, but the rematch later on in the same volume was its weakest story. By Vol. 8 he's become a kind of metal-encased Sideshow Bob, more suited to superhero comics than the reality-based fantasy of Conan's world. Yet Sharaq barely registers in the outcome of "The Jeweled Bird," which pits Conan against a giant tabby cat made of glass that shoots form-freezing rays from its eyes. It's not even the dumbest monster in that story; Conan fights a giant moth there, too.

There are a lot of dumb monsters in Volume 8 to go with the goofy plot twists. Too much supernatural mumbo-jumbo had overtaken the series by this point. The art isn't that good, either, even with John Buscema drawing most of it; too many blurry lines and mashed perspectives.

All in all, Vol. 8 is a depressing effort from people who showed that they could do much better.
My Review 29 mars 2013

This turned out to be something that I have really enjoyed and know others would like it just as I have.
Reading Conan at any time is a treat for the eyes and mind. I have every volume so far in this collection. That tells you something.
This trade/graphic novel is one that I'll read more than once. It will be staying in my collection always.
Michael Fleischer is no Robert E. Howard 27 juin 2015

Michael Fleischer is no Robert E. Howard for sure, I'm sorry I bought these books, the stories are terrible, and not very well thought out, Michael Fleischer should find another line of work.
