Conan and company go to the catacombs under the city and are confronted by zombies.
“The Shadow of Vengeance Chapter III”
By Scott Oden
Octavia has gone to an inn to wait for Conan. She is awakened by a mysterious figure that uses some hypnotism. She then under some sinister power goes out alone at night.
So Conan has a direct confrontation with Koga Thun. Not one of the most exciting encounters. There was some good action early with the snake-men. Then it was just too easy for Conan to be captured. It was also way too easy for Menes to rescue him. I don’t quite get what happened. I still have interest in the story and will see what happens in the next issue.
As for the prose story. So far a well written story. I am very interested to see where this goes.
