    It's no secret here at FTN that I absolutely loved this first part of this series so I won't beat around the bush. No clever jokes for my rating this time, just a solid… Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Oct 30, 2013

    Tomas Giorello is the belle of the ball in this series. His furious pencil work leaves every panel with just the right amount of dirt, anger and blood. Every character is scarred and worn. The world looks lived in and dangerous. Jose Villarrubia's incredible colors work perfectly with the detailed art, blending in and enhancing it, but never obscuring the line work. Seriously, this is a stunning comic book, a violent tribute to the world of Conan and something that all comic book fans should be reading. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Oct 29, 2013

    King Conan: The Hour of the Dragon #5 is a great comic that feels like a pause rather than a finale. Recommended. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Oct 30, 2013

    Unfortunately this issue rides on the coattails of the next issue too much. There's a lack of resolution and even worse, a lack of any perspective. Why should we care that Conan has lost the things he has? He's still King, or at least soon to be King again. A lot of the actions in this issue also seem to be more about getting from point A to point B more than having any meaningful message. Read Full Review

    Big picture time here, looking at not just this issue but this series in the possibility of trade purchase. I myself have said within these reviews that King Conan and the entire series feel very tired, very much going through the motions and while I feel that holds true for the other issues this is the first one in the series where "the motions" are actually pretty interesting again. It's the same meat and potatoes type story with our meat headed protagonist but this time it's being garnished with some new and imaginative spices in a much nicer restaurant then before. That's the best thing I can say about this issue of the series, the meat of the issue still isn't that great but the atmosphere is certainly better. I wouldn't recommend picking up the King Conan: Hour of the Dragontrade, though if you wanted to buy this issue there's really nothing wrong with that; however, there are just probably better things to spend your money on, here's hoping for better in 2014.
