More comfortable with a sword than a scepter, the enigmatic Kull has recently crowned himself king and seeks to unite the once proud and powerful land of Valusia.

More comfortable with a sword than a scepter, the enigmatic Kull has recently crowned himself king and seeks to unite the once proud and powerful land of Valusia. As representatives from all corners of his kingdom seek his counsel, the warrior-king accepts a strange invitation from the Pictish emissary.

More comfortable with a sword than a scepter, the enigmatic Kull has. The art by Will Conrad is heavily detailed, kinetic and very bloody, while Arvid Nelson's writing is fast-paced and sticks closely to Howard's spirit. There's plenty of both blood and thunder in t Having grown up on the Marvel incarnations of Conan, Kull, Red Sonja and other Robert E Howard characters, I wasn't expecting much from this graphic novel, but I picked it up used for a very low price, so it was worth a quick look. I was surprised to find that this was a exceptionally well-done volume.

Although not as good as Dark Horse's early Conan volumes, still a very enjoyable Sword and Sorcery romp. An expanded story is built around Howard's original tale. There are a couple changes/additions that I didn't like, but new readers will probably not think anything of them.
1. I never imagined the Picts as looking like black Africans, it seems rather strange. They should be more like a cross between Scotch barbarians (think Centurion, or King Arthur with Clive Owen) and American Indians.

2. Kull has a queen, the daughter of the king he overthrew by his own hand. Such a character was never mentioned Howard's stories. While it's clear that it's purely a political alliance and they have no real relationship, this is still a big divergence from the source material.

At any rate, it's well worth a read for fans of Conan comics.

KULL Volume 1 : The Shadow Kingdom is filled with outstanding art & brings Robert E. Howard's Pre Cataclysmic home of King Kull to life with the vibrant color it deserves. R.E.H. had a incredible gift, able to create vivid imagery with very few words as well as describe the action of combat in great detail while managing to keep his writing moving at a poetic almost song like pace! Not a easy thing to do when writing for the pulp's that limited the number of words you could use per story! While not 100% accurate to Howard's work these Graphic novel's stay pretty close to the source material. Thank goodness they kept Brule (The Spear Slayer) King Kull's Pict companion & most trusted friend, in a constantly turbulent Royal Court atmosphere where Kull's Barbarian charm's held little favor. It is also nice to see that the evil race of Serpent being's are kept in the story. Truthfully I cannot think of any other author who's work & imagery is more Graphic Novel friendly than Robert E. Howard!!! Howard created adult hero's as fast as Stan Lee could come up with Comic Book Super Hero's, especially when you consider how early R.E.H. passed away. Kull Volume 1 is a great opener for the trilogy of graphic novel's that follow. It's such a joy to see R.E.H.'s work reborn for another generation to discover! And being a Howard purest I hope this leads young reader's to Robert E. Howard's unadulterated writings! In Howard's short career he left us hero's custom designed to fit in the format of the graphic novel ranging in genre from detectives, Westerns, Boxers, Pirates, Historical, Tall tale's, Middle East meets west, Horror & of course Sword & Sorcery !

Positive:
-good artwork
-big, lively pictures in scenes of conflict

Negative:
-sometimes poor dialogue and a story that lacks sense at times

Overall:
I've never read Kull, but I like the Dark Horse Conan volumes so I decided to try this. I enjoyed some of the pictures and the overall feeling of this graphic novel, which was enough for me to give it 4 stars (I debated 3), but I felt the story lost something, particularly in the last two parts of the book. Kull is king, yet he is almost openly disrespected by the priests of set? He took the kingdom by force, but is unwilling to use further force to put down the serpent-priests, even when they pose a clear threat to him and try to assassinate him? I felt the attempt at diplomacy and political intrigue was unrealistic and misguided (somewhat juvenile, essentially), but again I went to four stars for the action and artwork; I mean, this is what I'd expect in a Kull novel.

I have numerous Robert E Howard stories that have been turned into graphic novels, and this one is the best. The creators emphasize that Kull came before Conan, and they offer evidence of why so much of Kull's character has been brought across to us as Conan. They explain that most of the story in the Arnold movie Conan the Barbarian is actually about Kull... And the artwork in The Shadwow Kingdom is of epic proportions. Too many times in these books the covers are outstanding but the pages are not of the same quality. In The Shadow Kingdom there are several page spreads that rival and surpass the covers. And in the back of the book there are several pencil examples so amazing I almost wish there was pencil only version. I ordered this book reluctantly, because I felt Kull was not Conan, now I am glad I took a chance, because in this version, the creators show us that Kull is as dynamic as any barbarian. With this axe he rules...
Ventelone
Surprisingly well written. It distinguishes itself from the marvel Kull tales while respecting the original tales. Digital version was easy to navigate and the artwork was impressive even on a small screen. I wish this was compatible with kindle for pc.
hardy
This is a great version of R.E.H.'s King Kull with lavish artwork and remaining true to the original short story. The artist really makes the ancient (and fictional) kingdom of Valusia come alive, and does an excellent job of illustrating the major characters as well.
Celore
I didn't spend three years in art Shhoool fur nuttin'- this is "Fine Art" and a
better condition than imagined -for the price- seller really delivers- Art exceeds story in this re-vamp of an "old settle the Ghost's dilemma" tale.
