Conan Reigns In SAVAGE SWORD OF CONAN: THE CULT OF KOGA THUN BLACK AND WHITE TPB


By Crom! This October, Marvel is proud to bring you the saga of the death cult of Koga Thun, presented for the first time in stunning black and white! Bringing the famed sword-and sorcery epic to life through brutally sharp storytelling, Ron Garney’s epic inked pages take an extra-special spotlight in this brand-new trade paperback that collects the opening arc of the most recent run of SAVAGE SWORD OF CONAN #1, “The Cult of Koga Thun,” written by Gerry Duggan.

“When Ron and I first discussed him illustrating this story, we knew we wanted to approach it in a style that would feel at home in the original SAVAGE SWORD OF CONAN, letting the final inked work contain all of the texture and detail and lighting cues to read standalone as well as it would in color,” said editor Mark Basso. “Ron’s extremely evocative ink work is second-to-none, and seeing it presented here in black-and-white makes for a distinct reading experience…a throwback to the original series in the best possible way and a showcase for Ron’s incredible talent.”

“I’m truly honored to have my work presented in this black and white format, in the greatest tradition of and Conan and the artistic greats that fueled our imaginations for so long,” added Garney. “It’s been a hope of mine for a while now -- since I was illustrating Daredevil even -- to see it shown this way, as I’ve felt this style I’ve developed is probably best represented in black and white. I’d like to thank Mark Basso and Marvel for making it happen, Gerry Duggan, Richard Isanove and Conan properties as well, and huge thanks to the fans who have shown me so much support for SAVAGE SWORD and my work in general. I hope you really dig it!”

Supernatural: The Complete Fourteenth Season Blu-ray Review

*Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this blog post. The opinions I share are my own* Synopsis: The Winchester brothers’ harrowing journey into the heart of darkness continues as Supernatural enters Season Fourteen. Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) have matched wits with monsters, demons, Heaven and Hell. But last season, the Winchesters and Castiel (Misha Collins) stumbled upon a terrifying alternate universe: an apocalyptic world where they were never born, all while training Jack (Alexander Calvert), the son of Lucifer, and trying to save their mother, Mary Winchester.

Book of the Week: Sci-Fi Thriller, Doyle’s Law

Doyle’s Law: Sci-Fi Thriller, a “Wild Ride”, Straps Readers into Space Station with Cosmos’ Most Irreverent Scientist Sam Roberts’ ‘Doyle’s Law’ is an intricate, cinematic new thriller that fuses intense paranoia and science fiction, told through the periscope of a bumbling, inept scientist attempting to fix the space station he has royally sabotaged. It’s a story in two parts, as time twists, plots tangle and the depths of human clumsiness become chillingly evident. One critic recently wrote, “This damn book cost me too much needed sleep. It was like a giant puzzle with all the pieces slowly making sense and fitting together. Well done, sir.” When most authors depict the crews of spaceships, they are painted as fearless, totally-in-control heroes using their wit and tenacity to achieve the unthinkable… …But Chief O’Connor, protagonist in Sam Roberts’ ‘Doyle’s Law’ is slightly less noble. In fact, his entire crew suspects him of sabotage and rampant buck-passing. As hostilities ri
