    Red Sonja/Conan continues to be an entertaining crossover, as despite the core concept behind this narrative not reaching its full potential, the team-up between the two characters more than excites. Things also heat up as the creative team add a monstrous creature for Sonja and Conan to face, resulting in great tension. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - KennyCoburn Sep 15, 2015

    Overall, this issue feels like it could have been a great final chapter to a larger narrative but, the build up to it was too rushed and none of the action feels like a rewarding payoff of what the series has done so far. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - John F. Trent Sep 8, 2015

    Red Sonja / Conan #2 is a very fast-paced, combat-filled adventure focused predominantly on Red Sonja as she attempts to recollect the events of the battle against Kal'ang's forces. For the most part the story is well-written, although the interrogation dialogue does get a little confusing. The artwork for the most part is decent although there are a number of mishaps, specifically the panel with the arrow through the soldier's neck. If you are looking for a good action story this week, Red Sonja / Conan #2 has plenty of it. Read Full Review

    This is a rare misfire in story and art for Howard's characters. I hope that next issue improves in both categories. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Sep 8, 2015

    What happens in the issue is exciting, but it's told all wrong with the story giving it all away in the first pages and then flashing back. The stakes could have been raised but the structure, or telling, lack the oomph it needs to make this an exciting and necessary read. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Patrick Self Sep 9, 2015

    Look, it takes effort to make any comic, good or bad. This just isn't a good book. Some odd story telling conventions lead to some screwy continuity issues and the art seems to have backslid from the previous issue. Unfortunately, it's not worth your time. Read Full Review
