Stuart Moore and Gabriel Guzman do serviceable work with the story and art, respectively, but there's nothing really outstanding about either.

The book is rounded out by a long, rather dry, article about Robert E. Howard's mythical land of Acheron. 2 people found this helpful. The story is told as if you are listening to a legend in a dark corner of a tavern with occasional flashbacks putting us into the action. This is the tale of Khalar Zym and his obsession to bring back his wife after she is burned at the stake for being a witch. He spends years dragging their daughter far and wide looking for the darkest sorcery known to man contained in the Mask of Acheron.

Conan the Barbarian book. Then I came across "Conan the Barbarian : The Mask of Acheron" from Dark Horse comics. After witnessing his wife burned at the stake, Khalar Zym sets out on a quest to find the Mask of Acheron, an ancient artifact that will bring his beloved back to life. It's the graphic novel based on the film and it was a great place to start. The story line was intriguing, it held my attention, and was easily read in one sitting.

CONAN THE BARBARIAN: THE MASK OF ACHERON, which I assumed would be an original graphic novel that functioned as a prequel to the upcoming Jason Momoa movie CONAN THE BARBARIAN, is actually something else entirely. It's basically an adaptation of the movie, with Conan as a side character who appears occasionally to foil the plots of the book's true subject: Khalar Zym, the film's villain. So be aware that, if you read this before seeing the movie, significant aspects of the film, including the finale, are going to be spoiled. The book gives us background on Zym that I'm betting the movie will not include, but overall, it seems to be a straightforward adaptation, albeit one told from the point-of-view of the villain, rather than the hero. Stuart Moore and Gabriel Guzman do serviceable work with the story and art, respectively, but there's nothing really outstanding about either. The book is rounded out by a long, rather dry, article about Robert E. Howard's mythical land of Acheron.

I found this comic very entertaining! I love the art work. It is drawn in the trendy new "reboot" style that is becoming popular. This comic is suppose to be based on the latest movie, but I haven't seen the movie or Katie's review of it so I went into this comic without any preconceived ideas. Sometimes that makes a big difference with comics.
The story is told as if you are listening to a legend in a dark corner of a tavern with occasional flashbacks putting us into the action. This is the tale of Khalar Zym and his obsession to bring back his wife after she is burned at the stake for being a witch. He spends years dragging their daughter far and wide looking for the darkest sorcery known to man contained in the Mask of Acheron.

The story and artwork are full of violence (hello, Conan!) and action scenes. We find out what happened to Conan as a child and understand what drives him. Unfortunately it isn't until page 30 that we get our first look at the grown up, bare chested Conan we have all come to love. He looks just as good on the printed page as he does on screen! Well, relatively speaking of course.

The story is a stand alone and completes the tale from start to finish. I love how the story ended with the same panel as it started, and the bad guy's demise is very Karmic. At the end of the comic there is an article called Acheron: The Nightmare inside the Age Undreamed Of written by Dale E. Rippke. It is a history of Conan using author Robert E. Howard's writings. It was very interesting at first, but got way to technical for a weekend comic reader like myself, but the die hard fans of Fantasy will appreciate it. I think any Conan lover would like to have this in their collection.
