In part two of "Kozaki," both Sergius the pirate and the sadistic Shah Amurath decide to confront Conan's group of bandits, who are encroaching upon their territories and threatening the outlying granaries, farms, and villages of the proud country of Turan. King Yildiz quickly orders the Shah to annihilate all Kozaki riders, and Sergius arranges a parley with our favorite Cimmerian. In a tense meeting, Sergius explains how commerce works around the Vilayet Sea and offers that their two imposing forces work together against the Shah. With those in Conan's hungry crew growing wild and impatient, Conan's not even sure how long he can keep his own men together -- but he'll slit the throat of any who try to defect!

    I'm not a long time Conan reader. I do like what I see here. While I did want to see more action, this issue shows that there is more to Conan than just seeing him hack away at people. Giving this story a three issue run seems just the right number to set things up and we'll see the final payoff next issue. There is action and suspense. We get a sort of cliffhanger that makes you want to come back next issue to see what Conan will do after the events here. It's a solid 4 out of 5. I may finally become a regular Conan reader after this arc. Read Full Review

    "Conan the Cimmerian" #20 is a solid issue that continues to tell one of the most popular Conan stories: his greed and pride leading to his downfall. However, with some gorgeous art and Truman's capable writing, it's still entertaining and, even, surprising in places. Read Full Review
