    #4 is out this week. Based on an outline by me, scripted by Mike and illustrated by Gianluca.

    Thoughts so far?
  1.  (8796.2)
    Wolfskin...a warrior comic with drugs featured prominently. Love the distrust of machines, love the fucked up fever dreams. Art and script are wonderful. Would love to see title character in a city. It is Conan done right for this day and age.

    I like this series much more than the first one. Good group of people that don't always see eye to eye, beautiful art taking up many pages at a time, similar colours on everything but it's all very distinct.

    Well done, chaps. Keep it up!

    I was not a fan of the original 3 issue mini but this new series is amazing. I love the supporting cast of characters that are fighting with Wolfskin and the whole overarching theme of a barbarian who is fighting against a changing world, a slowly industrialized world is just brilliant.

    In a way similar to themes John Milius was writing about in his second Conan (unproduced) script (downloaded it on a movie script site) - Conan basically becomes a King and has to deal with civilization, politics, treachery, etc..he returns to his barbaric ways of course to defeat his enemies and gives a speech saying that civilization is just ripples in a pond...some great stuff (and take it as a compliment that this mini reminds me of Milius' work!)

    My LCS didn't get it last week, or this week, but I anxiously await it because it has been really enjoyable so far. Great variety and contrast in the characters, smart subtle humour, exceedingly well choreographed violence, and I couldn't possibly say enough about the excellent artwork of Gianluca.
    Great stuff!

    Just read this the other night. Always behind I am. Picked up the first three at SDCC and read them all in the a row. Dig the story so far, definitely my favorite Wolfskin tale to date (yeah I'm a sucker for these semi-pubescent medieval motley crew of miscreants on a special mission of importance type stories). But the one thing that stick out with this series is Gianluca crushing with his work! I have to say I've thought of him as somewhere between competent and good prior to this series. Now I think of him as extraordinary! Really it's phenomenal artwork.

    np: Death - Spiritual Healing
