Geof Darrow + Conan = Awesome

Click the above image to enlarge and behold the blood drenched, limb dashing, extremities flinging, gore heaped spectacle that is Geof "Motherfucking" Darrow's wrap around cover to the 25th issue of Conan the Cimmerian.

Am I the only person who thinks this cover totally sucks? The poses are ridiculous! The facial expressions are retarded! The people all look like flabby old men! Half of the people are wearing khaki dress shorts!

Maybe it's just me.

Reis,
Visits to "Crom!" are a (not unlike a fistful of Vivarin and a Blueberry Pop-Tart) a morning ritual for Yours Truly. That having been said, it would seem that your own views on the physique of Robert E. Howard's Cimmerian lean toward the sinewy, stryated, bronze skinned variety often depicted in the Marvel Magazine covers (which I too, love to fucking death, by the way).
For me, I just enjoy seeing Conan handled by as many artists as possible (and with some stylistic variations too). Darrow's art might not be everybody's brand of Vodka, but I thought his take on Conan was pretty cool.
Plus, it's fucking gory.
