Diana has escaped the Cimmerian gladiator's arena, but she's exchanged that battleground for an equally dire fate. Now she's chained to Conan-the warrior who refused to fight-and they've been sold to a pirate's crew! When their ship founders in a storm, a leap into shark-infested waters seems like the safest course... Co-Published with Dark Horse Comics.

    Coming from someone who isn't a big Conan reader, this crossover has been something special. Gail Simone is showing us why she's considered one of the best in this industry. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Oct 19, 2017

    The only respect in which this issue falters is in its cover, which spoils the final cliffhanger of the comic. Sadly, the synopsis of this issue made the same mistake, robbing the reader of any sense of surprise as to just how our heroes survive the arena. Despite this minor problem, this comic should be on the pull list of every fan of The Amazing Amazon and Conan The Cimmerian. Read Full Review

    This is a great issue. The art is gorgeous with expressive characters and dynamic action. The title characters are a lot of fun and engaging whether they're talking or kicking ass. It's a fun book and I highly recommend reading it. Read Full Review

    Overall the book is well-paced, dynamic, engaging and most of all " fun! Everything an action-adventure comic book should be. If you aren't reading this series, you should be! Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Oct 22, 2017

    This is the battle that fans wanted to see and it delivers. Simone has a perfect understanding of how each character should act, while Lopresti and Ryan know how each should look. Plenty of action and wonderful visuals make this a fan's dream come true. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Nov 6, 2017

    No doubt next issue will bring additional answers and explanations. Rather than waste a lot of energy trying to figure out why from the start, its easy tosimply trust that all will be revealed in due time, but for now, its fun to just sit back and enjoy the ride. Read Full Review

    Geekery Magazine - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Oct 18, 2017

    This book is a great read for long time comic fans. There is no “darkness approaching”, there is no “clock ticking” and there is definitely no Dark Batmen to worry about. It goes to show that DC, can put out a quality book without the need for Batman to appear, albeit with help from Dark Horse on this occasion. Fans of team-up, Conan or Wonder Woman should be buying this book as an example of what creators on top of their game can produce. Read Full Review

    The Lost Lighthouse - thelostlighthouse Oct 20, 2017

    I very much enjoyed the world portrayed in this comic and the versions of the characters and their development within it. My main criticism would be some of the themes, the two heroes forced into combat right away and so on are feeling a little overly familiar now. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Christina Williams Oct 19, 2017

    This is the first Conan comic Ive read in a long time, and it stood up to what I remembered it for. Strong art, stronger dialogue, and a well set pace. The story itself draws you in and makes you want to read it faster and faster, even though you know its only a mini-series. The art has no major flaws, and is beautifully constructed. I look forward to seeing where this will go for Diana and Conan. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - L.E.H. Light Oct 18, 2017

    After a turn in the arena, our duo gets themselves exiled to a pirate ship? Fishing boat? Both? A situation from which they escape by going overboard. But does Wonder Woman fight a shark? Nope. Next issue, Wonder Woman better punch those sharks. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jeremy Daw Oct 18, 2017

    A somewhat lacklustre follow-up to last issue's more coherent opening installment, this issue is still entertaining enough but drags occasionally and errs on the side of predictability. Lopresti's art remains impressively dynamic and aesthetically excellent (his Diana is genuinely stunning), but that alone isn't quite enough to lift things here. Read Full Review
