The Argos Deception - Conan's Wrath!

After coming to Messantia, a port city of Argos, Conan was immediately arrested for previous crimes against the state. But, it was the intention of Conan, Belit, and the crew of the Tigress for this to happen as a diversionary tactic in order to plunder and loot the city and fill the Tigress' hold with tons of gold and jewels. There's only one catch; Conan must free himself before being executed, and Belit and the rest of the crew must make their escape with the entire cities forces standing in their way.

Ok, the artwork here is pretty good and has a slightly gritty feel to it. James Harren does a fantastic job of capturing Conan's rage, and the battle scenes are brutal. The story is well written and flows easily. My only real problem with this story is some of the narration for Conan's inner monologue. At times the narrator makes him seem depressed, sad, scared, and even lovesick for Belit. Now, I don't know about you, but I don't remember in all my years reading Conan, him ever being scared or lovesick. It's a minor complaint, and overall Conan's still as ferocious and barbaric as you would expect, save for just a bit of the narration.

If you like Conan mad as heck, and hacking his way through everyone in his path, then chances are you'll like this book. Plenty of action from the first page to the last and it's driven well by the story.

This is one Conan fan that is onboard!

Glad to see some more Conan fans. I've been on board (the Tigress) since the series started, and have been enjoying it as well!
