I love how large and distant you make Cimmeria feel. Your version of Conan was one of the most unique ever done. It was good to see a more lean, wolfish version of him and not that typical Arnold bar-stool sort, not that I don't love that version too. I hope future Conan artists take a tip from you. It has already been said, but your environments are amazing, especially the way you draw trees, like in The Mire.
Wow I've found your deviant art page. Conan the barbarian is currently one of my favorite ongoing comic books, it's been a real blast so far. I knew Conan in my childhood from the movies with Arnold Schwarzenegger, but this is the first Conan comic book I read thoroughly, and the art is a big reason why I dig it so much. I especially love the way you drew BÍlit... she's really easy on the eyes haha.
I was saddened to see you leave the book! But hopefully it's not permanent, I'm looking to see you drawing more adventures of Conan and BÍlit sometime.
This book has been my eye sex. I can't stress how perfect it is, and I generally don't like most Conan comics. I've got my Savage Sword collections and those are good enough. What really keeps me warm at night are my signed illustrated collections. But srsly. This book is everything I could have wanted so far. When I heard you were on this I got so excited I had to tell everyone (and yell at someone). I knew you'd be perfect for coming in and treating Conan with an unfiltered lens. Not to put an emphasis on gender, but most guys have this specific idea about Conan in their heads and what he should and shouldn't be. I felt like you'd be coming at this sort of fresh, or at least have different enough interests in what his character is to imbue him with a rich, human personality that Howard describes but seems lost in all the muscle and monsters. I feel like you and Brian "get it" where many before have not. This and Glory were the first floppy comics I'd bought since I was a kid, and they keep giving me a reason to get excited about going to the comic store every month.
