    Robert E. Howard's only Conan novel “The Hour of the Dragon” continues to be expertly adapted by the team of Tim Truman and Tomas Giorello, a story being narrated by King Conan narrating to the royal scribe so he may note it down for the history books. Last issue left off with Conan the exiled king sneaking into the Temple of Set in search of the priest Thutothmes and a stolen gem that may be the key to some serious magical mayhem. In the temple, he bumps into a gorgeous creature who can help him find the priest, and one who shows her true colors before long. Conan knows a good thing when he sees it; he knows a bad thing when he sees it too.

    Later on, Conan finds what he is looking for, but it may be too late. Thutothmes is already using the gem, the Heart of Ahriman, and he's looking to recruit an old friend. Before Conan can intervene, soldiers come looking for him in the name of the new king of Aquilonia, King Valerius. So he not only has to deal with the priests, now he has to deal with an elite team of soldiers. But has anything ever come easy for Conan, other than killing? Probably not, and it certainly isn't easy this time around. And if he thought the priests and mercs were a problem, wait until he sees what's coming around the corner.

    This is Conan, pure and unspoiled. Page after page, the creative team's output is of high caliber; big fights, big monsters, big boobs, and big Conan. Giorello's artwork is just perfect for Conan stories. And the lady Conan meets in the temple looks like she could have come out of a an old Vampirella story drawn by Esteban Maroto . The color in this series by Jose Villarrubia gives Giorello's pencils and inks an extra kick that just makes the book that much better. Really nice looking stuff combined with excellent story telling makes this series highly recommended.
