Bane has set his sights on crushing the Vor, a network of Eastern European thieves who are among the deadliest in the world...but somehow, it's less than surprising that where you find a collection of thieves, you find Catwoman! Will she derail Bane's plans? Or is there an opportunity for a deal here?

    This feels like an untold chapter of Bane's story from two or three reboots ago. Unfortunately, that has no place in DC Rebirth. Read Full Review

    Where I was hoping that this series would finally pick up now that it seems we have the catalyst for the "Conquest" angle to this book, instead we see Bane playing games and losing at them, while we try to figure out Russian terms and slang.  This issue just isn't that interesting and while I continue to love the art in this book, the story already feels like it's gone on too long.

    Overall, a rather forgettable issue. A meandering story with no threats and a predictable betrayal. Even though the art isn't disappointing, it's not great enough to save the rather dull tale being told. Read Full Review

    So far, all of Dixon's work on Bane: Conquest has been immensely plot heavy. While I'll admit to having some difficulty adjusting to such shallow premises being the basis for an entire series, this particular issue is the first where I actually found the premise remotely intriguing. With this, my initial gripe with the series has been somewhat taken care of. Unfortunately, this problem has been replaced with a new one. Throughout this story, I feel that Dixon has had difficulty presenting valid character motivations for the actions that the characters take. Add to that the fact that Dixon seems to have forgottenabout elements that he himself established within the character, and it just provides a very uneven read. And really, that breaks the story for me. Read Full Review

    My problem with this book is the complete waste of potential a series like this COULD have. Rather than making this a story about Bane and his gang on a globetrotting quest to dismantle various criminal empires and build an army, the series seems to be content with making Bane do bad guy stuff simply because he is a bad guy. It's very low stakes, and feels very disposable. This issue exemplifies that issue more than the rest have, as not even an appearance by Catwoman can help add levity the boring plot.
