Book Description

10 July 2012 Chronicles of Conan (Book 22)
Conan will never say no to a gem-encrusted blade, especially if its edge is the only thing between him and a dozen angry men with death in their eyes — but the sword he wields comes with a deadly debt to the demon Kx’Ulthuum! If Conan isn’t careful, he’ll be the first of an army of undead led by the fiend to take over the world!

4.0 out of 5 stars Still impressive 18 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although definitely not the prime Conan adventures, still impressive thanks to Buscema work. Soon Buscema will leave and the overall quality will sour, so hold on to this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Forgettable hack and slash 18 Jan 2013
By Raoul Raoul - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Although Chronicles of Conan, v. 21: Blood of the Titan and Other Stories had some redeeming qualities, Chronicles of Conan, v. 22: Reavers in the Borderland and Other Stories is mostly random hack-and-slash action, full of gaudily colored thugs, wizards, and bravos trying to cut Conan down. And I don't mean that in a good way.

Michael Fleisher, who wrapped up his two-year run here, writes largely forgettable pieces, studded with violence and lady flesh. Fleisher's stories show little wit and feature no memorable characters. The images parade in front of the eyes and then vanish, leaving as much of an impression upon Conan as they do the reader -- that is, none. He brings back forgettable characters from previous stories, and they make no more impression the second time around. His Conan is bland and mild, even going so far as giving his horse to an evil woman who tried to steal his magic sword.

Fleisher fails to deliver on the cliffhanger from the end of Blood of the Titan, making the bold choice of ignoring the dangling plot altogether. Reprint editor Chris Warner doesn't help matters by starting off the volume with two annuals. Not only does it delay the resolution of that cliffhanger, but it makes the narrative more forgettable by interrupting what little momentum Fleisher's stories had.

Jim Owsley starts his run on the final two issues. His work on those issues and an annual is promising, as his Conan is more blunt and plainspoken and the stories more violent. Owsley also seems to recognize Conan can't operate in a vacuum; he needs someone to react to and to react to him occasionally, and he includes a few characters we can become attached to. But it's only two issues of a longer storyline; it can't save the entire book.

John Buscema's in fine form in this book, although his art looks better with some inkers than others. The final two issues are especially superb and sharp, even if Conan's blue-sleeveless-tee-and-fur-underwear combo is long overdue to go. Ernie Chan draws an action-packed Annual #9, although he can't quite measure up to Buscema.

This book is a waste of time. Reavers has little to recommend it, other than Buscema's art, and Buscema's work is in so many better Chronicles. Only completionists should consider this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Up from the Nadir 9 Dec 2012
By Benjamin C. Lynch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After issue 100, things nose dive, especially after Roy Thomas departs the title. With this volume and the arrival of Jim Owsley on the scripts, a genuine pastiche epic is on the way that carries on for the next thirty plus issues, which stand the test of time. Nonetheless, some inferior Fleischer stories constitute the bulk of this volume; a truly stupid annual story occupies more space than warranted. Buscema's pencils are more perfunctory, too. Nonetheless, great things are in store when Jim Owsley takes over the reigns. Seriously. It's fairly heavy and original stuff on the way. ;D Children will be murdered. Souls will be devoured. Women will be violated. Tyrants will be slain. A story arc will be maintained and carried onward with some respect for the actual source material. If you suffered this far, your reward is at hand.
5.0 out of 5 stars Fleisher kicks ... 20 Feb 2013
By 38 Gunner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is one of the best series of graphic novels I've ever seen. The artwork is a thing of beauty and of all the writers on the various "Conan" graphic novels, Fleisher's got the guts to portray Conan as the violent, brutally direct, unvarnished barbarian that we've all come to love.
Fleishers' stories are imaginative, violent, sexy, and full of surprises.
What more could a died-in-the-wool Conan fan ask?

PLEASE, KEEP THESE COMING!!!

Loved the artwork. I will buy "Savage sword of Conan" and "Chronicles of Conan" but not "King Conan" any more.
