Review: Conan the Barbarian #19

By Reboot

Today I'm reviewing Dark Horse Comics' Conan the Barbarian #19, the start of Black Stones: Part 1 written by Brian Wood with art by Paul Azaceta and colors by Dave Stewart.  Though this is a continuation of Brian Wood's run, it is a decent jumping on point being the start of a new arc, so don't dismiss this title solely for the scary #19 on the cover.  If that's not enough to persuade you, keep reading!

This adventure follows Conan and Belit sailing on the Tigress in the Western Ocean, causing some pirate related mayhem along the way.  In this particular story, there are these scary Black Stone thingies that do stuff I don't wanna tell you because you should read it.  For the sake of clarification, they do not do good things.  We also get a mix of seafaring in addition to creepy small town craziness all in one issue!
