New Conan the Cimmerian Cover by Joseph Micheal Linsner is... ummm... Just Okay.


Is it me or is Dark Horse letting us down a bit with the covers of the new Conan comic? I've never been a big Linsner fan, so maybe I'm being biased. But all of the covers from this new title have left me missing the grittiness that the Hyborian world deserves.

What do you guys think?

Meh... Not very good. I never like the straight-from-the-salon hair on the Big C :-D

I like what he's trying to do with the two guys eyeballing him like, "he's on our side?" Problem is, Conan looks like he's 5'8"—he should be at least half a head taller than them. He's not very imposing looking either.

Exactly! Linsner's style is just too soft for this kind of work.

Wow! Terrible!!! What the heck are they thinking. This looks like the first frame to some cheesy gay sex cartoon, not Conan.

I've really been enjoying the dark horse Conans, but this seems to be the nail in the coffin. They should have their ip license revoked for this.

I have to agree with Darius -- Conan's hair has never looked before.
