Alone, battle weary, and with nothing but his sword, Conan of Cimmeria faces his inevitable death in the arid wastes . . . but instead stumbles into a camp of Kozaki raiders. With a knife at his throat and a band of Turanian hunters at his back, will the half-dead barbarian find a new ally in the Kozaki chief?

Cryptocracy #1
Story by Van Jensen
Art by Pete Woods
Publisher: Dark Horse Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
For time beyond memory, the Nine Families watched from the shadows, believing themselves shepherds and manipulating whole societies as they saw fit. Nothing happened that they didn’t observe or control. Outsiders knew naught of the Families, much less threatened them. Until now.

Rating: ★★★½☆

Little Red Fish #4
The Little Red Fish by James Moffitt and Bizhan Khodabandeh is an Orwellian retelling of the Iranian revolution. It takes place on a reef off of the Persian Gulf, and follows the journey of a young fish, as he grows into a renowned leader.

With a growing following, and significant critical praise, The Little Red Fish is becoming a known name within the indie comics world. The book is being taught at several arts colleges and is held in collections at several universities, including Virginia Commonwealth University and University of Arkansas. Sink/Swim Press, an independent publisher in Richmond, Virginia, recently released the second book of the six-part series.

Welcome to Bedrock, where Paleolithic humans head to dinner for a taste of artisanal mammoth after shopping at Neandertall & Big Men’s Clothing, where Wilma shows her modern art, and where, if you take a plane, you could literally end up sitting ON the tail section. Join Fred and Barney as Mister Slate sends them on a mission to show some Neanderthals a night on the town in hopes of luring them into this new system called “working for a living.” In Slate’s Quarry, of course. Is Fred’s ship about to come in? Find out when the gang finishes out the evening at the employee hot tub party, where they learn how the one percent lives here in Bedrock, home to the world’s first civilization and the modern stone-age family—The Flintstones. Don’t miss this extra-sized debut issue!
