Preview Pages Up for Wood and Cloonan's "Queen of the Black Coast"

Comics Alliance has just posted a six-page preview of the first issue of Brian Wood and Becky Cloonan's adaptation of "Queen of the Black Coast" for Dark Horse Comics.  Cloonan's slimmer Conan is on display; I especially like the panel layout of p. 5.  One question, though: why do Cimmerians talk in pointy word balloons when everyone else uses regular round word balloons? :)


  1. Now that is a good rape-face. ;)

  2. In all likelihood, the different word balloon is to represent his horrible, harsh barbarian accent, which at this point in his career, is still very noticeable.

    In the movies, Conan should have been speaking in a harsh brogue worthy of a Dublin stevedore or North Sea oil platform Scottish roughneck...
