    This was a fantastic issue and I just hope it continues to be as fantastic for the next ten issues. This is a series that everyone should be reading, especially if you're a Bane fan. Read Full Review

    GWW - Christopher Rodriguez Jun 7, 2017

    I can't recall hating a first issue and then loving a second issue, quite like I did with Bane: Conquest. I hate to admit it because you shouldn't shove him into every story, but the inclusion of Batman made a world of difference here. Bane and Bruce Wayne bouncing off each other was done perfectly. A few hiccups aside, this series has a classic Batman feel to it, that I didn't know I needed till this second issue. Read Full Review

    Bane Conquest #2 is another cog in the wheel with the potential to be another great, long read series. Read Full Review

    I'm a big fan of the Batman universe and it's always interesting to have situations that force enemies to work together. This particular scenario works on many levels and, as mentioned earlier, does a great job of showing just how different Bane and Bruce Wayne's approaches to problems are. One looking for the way to brute force a solution and the other looking for the clever way out, a way to possibly learn more about the captor in the meantime. Many of these comics arguably need to be read together to get the full picture in order to really enjoy the story in a more complete manner… in this case though I would actually say you can enjoy this one on it's own… it is absolutely part of a larger story but it actually has enough contained in these 32 pages to enjoy on their own.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jun 7, 2017

    I was surprised with how much fun I had reading this issue for as straight forward and quick as it was, but we had great interactions, it furthered the story and had fun art all the way through.  Hopefully the series continues on feel that this issue had because if that's the case, this throwback type series may just become something that I look forward to every month.   Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brandon Mulholand Jun 7, 2017

    While much better than issue #1, I'm still waiting to be wowed. To be honest, there's nothing I can specifically point to and say, "This is what I don't like." Or, "This is what is wrong with this comic." It's more just a feeling in my gut and simply not being completely on board yet. I may get there and I may not. But even if I don't, I still quite enjoyed the interactions between Bane and Batman that were presented in this particular issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Jan 21, 2018

    Graham Nolan is very dynamic here. His work is expressive in the old action adventure comic book way that we dont see as much these days. While his style looks a bit dated it is exactly how a big brute like Bane needs to be portrayed. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Ryan Lower Jun 8, 2017

    Bane: Conquest#2 isn't a bad issue by any means. This writer just has a particular version of Bane that he likes, and this isn't up there. The story is slowly moving along, but yet we've barely scratched the surface at just two issues in. I won't lie, I loved seeing Bruce play a big factor in this issue, and his banter with Bane was pretty fun to read. While it may seem like I've been dogging on this, it wasn't too bad. I'm optimistic it's going to pick up in the future, so I'll stay invested. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Andrew Wheeler Jun 7, 2017

    This is just a fine issue. I enjoyed it and I know other readers will as well. This book so far feels like a stir you would hear around a campfire which isn't a bad thing at all. Bane: Conquest is on a great journey so far and I can't wait to see where it goes. Read Full Review

    Although this story arc got off to a rough start, things picked up in the second act. Bringing Bruce Wayne into the picture and forcing him to work with Bane is definitely a novelty that has not yet worn off on me. Overall, this issue was a lot more enjoyable than I had anticipated and I'll definitely be reading the third part. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jun 8, 2017

    The appeal of having Bane co-creators Chuck Dixon and Graham Nolan working with the character again was deflated after reading the first chapter of this new maxi-series. Issue #2 makes some solid improvements, but Conquest still isn't on the level of their previous Batman work. Read Full Review
