HUNDRED WORD HIT #52 - AGE OF CONAN: VALERIA #1-5
Age of Conan - Valeria #1-5 by Meredith Finch & Aneke
Valeria, the mightiest swordswoman in Aquilonia has spent years honing her skills for the moment she will eventually face her brother’s killer and exact her revenge.
Her quest for vengeance will lead her to an ancient monastery and the mysterious Knights of Mitra, she’ll cross swords with Lord Blasius before coming face to face with the killer. Or is it that straightforward?
Finch tells an entertaining tale with just enough mis-direction to fill five issues, and Aneke’s art is nice. The ending is a little abrupt, but maybe that’s because Marvel has plans for more Valeria in the future?
