On the run from a cadre of guards, Conan is aided by two sister thieves who just happen to be in need of a strong back to help them with an upcoming heist. Never one to turn his back on adventure (or two beautiful sisters), Conan agrees to assist in the robbery of a reportedly haunted cliff-top castle. But evil spirits may be the least of Conans problems when both sisters set their sights on taking the barbarian as their own! Written by fan favorite Ron Marz and illustrated by the incomparable Bart Sears, this is one Conan tale true fans will not want to miss!

    Island of No Return #1 is a fun adventure with a classic Conan feel, but it seems rather hollow. The story of this issue is merely lead-in for issue #2 that, even with the strong efforts by Bart Sears, isn't able to constitute a memorable tale. Read Full Review

    Nope. This is exactly what I was afraid of. Even worse. This is a time-slip back to the bad Image Comics days, when everything was Badass! and things like respect for tradition, depth of story, and characterization took a backseat to flashy art and adolescent power fantasies. Do you not remember, Ron Marz and Bart Sears? Those were not Good Comics! Those kinds of comics nearly destroyed the industry! Read Full Review

    "Conan: Island Of No Return" has been an average start. The second and concluding installment, will have to drop some serious awesome in order to make this tale memorable in the slightest. This is a collection of all the good things you've seen Conan do before, but this time they're not done as well. The art craftsmanship is superb but it can't save this book from weighing itself down with its own redundancy. Read Full Review
