I just read #2 and I loved it! As a Conan newbie, I've never read the "original" story. Any comments on how the two compare?
Although, I don't expect them to be exact, I'm just curious how well the Dark Horse guys did.

<snip>There should have been a few pages that built up the battle, and a few more pages at the end that set up the Aesir's betrayal of Conan re: Hyperborea. That's what I think, anyway. Also, the so far excellent cover artist seems to be slipping in quality based on the cover preview of #3.

In fact, I seem to remember far fewer full-page ads in Conan #1 than in, say, your average Marvel comic. So I'd say that rather than getting a bum deal, you in fact got a bargain.
Welcome to comics pricing in the year 2004...
