One Good Thing And One Bad Thing About Conan The Cimmerian #25

BAD THING: This is a great issue of a great comic. But in the end it is, as advertised, the last issue of Conan the Cimmerian.

GOOD THING: The good news is that this is not the last we shall see of everyone's favorite barbarian hero from Dark Horse Comics. The current team will return next year to do a King Conan mini-series. And then there's the big announcement that Roy Thomas - the man who brought Conan to comics nearly 40 years ago - is returning to the comics industry to write a new monthly Conan book: Conan: The Road Of Kings!

Here's one of the covers for Issue #1!

The Final Verdict: An era comes to an end with a bright new dawn on the horizon for Dark Horse Comics and Conan. I'm sad to see the current team go but I can't wait to see what Roy Thomas has in store for us in the upcoming Road of Kings series.
