The originals by Robert E Howard are better written, yet I enjoy the lurid prose of Roy Thomas and the artwork of John Buscema and Justin Alcala, and I guess I will continue to read the series, as long as the creative team behind the comic maintains the level of quality that I have seen in the first almost 50 issues. About this fourth album, I liked in particular the fact that it contains at least three longer story arcs spread over 3 or more individual issues that allow for better characters and more complex plots. Conan the Buccaneer may be the best story in the series so far. I also enjoyed the fill-in articles and the occasional Solomon Kane and Red Sonja guest star appearances.
