It's been 10 years of Dark Horse Comics publishing Conan, and it's been a fantastic run. Kurt Busiek set the tone early on, and his tenure was unfortunately short-lived. But he hand-picked Tim Truman to replace him, and it got even better. Truman seems to channel REH like no other comics writer who's tackled the character. Truman had a long and memorable run, but then the reigns were handed off to Roy Thomas, the legend. Roy had an excellent 12-issue run, clearly still on top of his game. Next was Brian Wood, whose run started off interesting, but overall a disappointment to Howard purists like me. I don't think he understands Conan, and I don't think he understands REH; it's the first time DH has dropped the ball in 10 years, but with Tim Truman brought back in to jump ahead and adapt Hour of the Dragon, they have restored my faith.
