    1. Possibly the best graphic novel I have ever read. For a solid storyline, outstanding artwork and gripping plot: 5 stars all the way.I think the combination of storytelling via typed pages and illustrations makes it stand out more than if it had just been illustrated, as most graphic novels are. Corben's art is unbeatable. I am a fan of the Conan-type sword & sorcery genre, and in my opinion Corben's artwork is on par with John Buscema. There are none better, and this book demonstrates that.

    4. Desenele lui Corben sunt foarte atragatoare si se potrivesc ca o manusa cu atmosfera post apocaliptica a benzii.Din pacate eu ma asteptam ca povestea sa fie un pic mai lunga si mai stufoasa.Nu a fost sa fie chiar asa, dar oricum orice volum desenat de Richard Corben are un impact vizual deosebit a si poate fi o experienta fantastica pentru oricine.

    5. An amazing comicbook adaption of Robert Ervin Howard´s short story "The Valley of The Worm" illustrateded super talented Richard Corden. My copy of book: Ariel Books, September 1979, softcover.

    6. Corben en estado puro, desatado, una adaptación canónica y espectacular del relato de Howard, páginas y páginas de nivel excelso en narrativa, emotividad, fuerza y emoción. El trabajo pleno de un maestro absoluto q se concreta en una obra redonda. Me ha encantado, de mis preferido de Corben.

    7. I've only read a little part from an magazine but I like what i see and will try to find this one in complete version.
