    Comic Bastards - Neil Rodriguez Jul 8, 2012

    I have to say, this is hands down my favorite book in comics right now. The storytelling is brilliant and Wood knows when to give you a balance between action and story, the art is brilliant and the book just keeps bringing you cool moments in every issue. Can we get to August already because, I need more Conan! Read Full Review

    My biggest issue was towards the end, where Belit's in a damsel-in-distress situation and needs Conan to come save the day. That just doesn't sit right, considering Belit's amazing scene in the previous issue. I don't mind Belit needing Conan's rescue -- he is physically mightier than here, and is the brawn to her brain—but if Belit is going to be knocked to her knees I want it to be something more than a handful of nameless mooks that bring her down.  That’s beneath her.  Save Conan’s rescue for a truly mighty opponent, and preserve Belit’s reputation as the Queen of the Black Coast.

    Newsarama - Rob McMonigal Jul 10, 2012

    Layered in both story and art, Conan the Barbarian #6 is everything you could ask from a comic featuring Robert E. Howard's signature character. There's action, violence, and even romance in the pulp tradition, but, like Howard's original, so much more than that to offer the reader. This is a must-read comic right now, and looks like it it's only going to keep getting better. Read Full Review

    I don't believe in giving out 10's, but this was was pretty high up there. This was a fantastic issue. Easily one of the best titles going on right now.
