The writing just starts out weak and stays weak throughout the whole story and is way too wordy. Lacks anything to make you care about what happens to Conan which is bad when I am someone who loves the Conan character. The best writer's have Conan ooze testosterone when he speaks but that also is missing here.
Wish I hadn't already purchased volume 2 but I definitely won't be back for volume 3 unles they have an entirely new creative team.

To be fair to marvel the hardback collections of the legacy comics are done much better, but I find very little excuse for the sheer lack of quality in this product. I was so disappointed I cancelled my preorder of the Savage Sword (2019) collected vol 1.
This is Conan how he is supposed to be. Going from adventure to adventure, battle to battle, fighting to the death. Yet even he cannot out run his own demise forever a death was promised and it intends to collect no matter how many years later.
See Conan in various stages of his life fighting, not just surviving but thriving. Call many names but never civilised (atleast not twice) or tamed.
A great collection of stories from birth to death, with many adventures from between. A must have for any Conan fan. Cover gallery of all the covers including variant covers either displayed on full page or 4 on a page picture. Great artwork, great story and as I expect from Conan action at its bloody best.
For a long time fan, Aaron seems to have slept thru all the Conan stories he read, seems like he used a wii to catch up on details. He fails miserably at capturing Howard's prose, something Roy Thomas nailed in the 70s and his Road of Kings, and more recently Kurt Busiek and Timothy Truman did with Dark Horse.
The story jumps about the place from King Conan, to his youth and back again, it reminded me of Aaron's Thor: the Thunder God run, it was insanely frustrating and not once did anything ring like it was genius writing or plotting.
The art work is barely decent, Howard's Hyborian Age of Conan is no where to be found within the panels
By Crom...it is time to return to the REAL Age Undreamed of, for this was not it...
A história é contada no mesmo formato do primeiro run do Aaron pelo Thor, misturando a ordem dos eventos, você tem o velho Rei Conan, o jovem Conan, o pirata e o tradicional e truculento guerreiro, a arte também é muito boa.
