One Good Thing And One Bad Thing About Kull: The Hate Witch #4

GOOD THING: The story of Kull's hunting down the witch that has tormented him since childhood comes to a satisfying conclusion, with the writing and artwork living up to the standard thus far.

BAD THING: The entire plot thread involving the attempted coup and what Kull's court is doing while he is away hunting the witch is completely pointless and almost entirely resolved off-panel. Better that it had not been included that it should however briefly distract away from the meat of the tale.

The Final Verdict: An epic conclusion to a wonderful mini-series, marred only by a subplot that was ultimately unneeded.

  1. Holy crap, Kull has a queen?
    Of course, I've mentioned my homosexual/homosocial reading of Kull in the original Howard before, haven't I? Still, strikes me as offputting.
