Truck reviewed Bane: Conquest #1 May 3, 2017
4.0

This was a huge let down after reading the recent I Am Bane story arch in Batman. This while thing felt like Bane could be replaced with anyone and the story would have been just as mediocre. I'd give it a pass for now in hopes that the next issues are better but it's not looking good.

Best Punisher book on the shelves at the moment. Feel like this duo understand him much better than the ongoing series. This is also a book that made me actually chuckle to myself while reading which is a pretty rare feat.

I'm not sure there is a word in the English language to describe how bad Cloonans' " Punisher" run has been and issue #10 is no exception. With the passing of artist Steve Dillon, the only reason to buy this title is gone. Time for a writer change and a total reboot.

This series is a lost cause. The dialogue is cringy to read and this story with Face is just a tacked on mess. The art is just about in par with everything else in the book. Just leave it on the shelf and hope for a reboot sooner rather than later.
