    Conan the Avenger 5 is a fun title that puts everyone's favorite barbarian in a new situation and highlights aspects of his personality that typically aren't shown. While I was a bit uncertain about this new series when it first started, it has definitely found its voice and proves to be another solid addition to the character's long and storied history. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Conan the Avenger #5 is exactly what I, as a fan of the Hyborian age, wanted to read. Kudos to Dark Horse Comics for keeping the favored barbarian alive and special thanks to this creative team for making this tale interesting. Recommended. Read Full Review

    I like where this series is going, but as we head towards part six, I'm still sort of lost at sea as to where it wants to go. In fairness, I also don't know much about Conan, so I don't know if this is a typical kind of way to tell a Conan yarn, it's just that we're five issues in and I'm not sure what the hero wants the world to look like if he achieves his goals. Meanwhile, I'll keep checking back in every month. Read Full Review

    I will be the first to admit that Conan the Avenger is a complex read for the first few issues. But be patient, my friend, because things really start to tie together in this issue! Definitely my favorite Dark Horse title and right up there for superhero titles. Must read!
