7.24 Panel

I'm a bit disappointed with the middle issue of Mignola's Conan arc (after a promising start in #29).  Just feels a bit lazy to me (there's not a lot of substance IMO); rushed maybe?

I'm liking it, if only for the very ... Mignola-ness of it all. The page layouts are pure Mignola, and it's wierd seeing Nord interpret those "shot of wierd statue" panels. I'm also enjoying seeing Conan mix it up with the very Lovecraftian stuff Mignola loves - Lovecraft and Howard were friends, and it really mixes well.

Zilla is not my real name.

I'm from Tejas living in VA. I'm married w/ 2 dogs. I'm an IT security consultant cranking the wheel for a big consulting firm in "real" life.

I watch the History Channel, Nat'l Geo, TLC, Mil Channel, ESPN and NFL Network, CourtTV (forensic files, etc.) and the Cartoon Network (love Genndy T's Samurai Jack and Clone Wars Adventures). My taste in movies: Gladiator, Last Samurai, Braveheart, Godfather, Tarantino (whatever), Kung-Fu (whatever), Westerns, Top Gun, Big Lebowski.

I love the outdoors and bs'ing around w/ my dogs.

In addition to being a comics junkie, i'm also a sports junkie especially when it comes to the Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Cowboys.
