Our heroes have escaped the Corvidae, but if they want to save new friends from the witches' wrath, they'll have to work together. That would be a simple matter if their utmost desire wasn't to end the other's life! Co-published with Dark Horse Comics.

    Epic, funny, and action-packed. Wonder Woman/Conan has everything you could possibly want in a comic book crossover and then some. Gail Simone and Aaron Lopresti are creating something special with this mini-series. One can only hope the success of this series leads to more issues. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Jan 30, 2018

    Wonder Woman and Conan come to a town to eat and drink, with the latter getting them into trouble. The story is progressing well, but thankfully takes a pause so both leads can learn more about each other, as well as bash some heads. The artwork is fantastic, showing Lopresti and Ryan to be at the top of their game. This team-up continues to be enjoyable. Read Full Review

    I'm still riding high on the quality of this book. If you have not been reading this series, you need to pick this issue up and the three before it. Now. I mean it, stop reading this and go get these books! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Dec 20, 2017

    Two more issues are left in this series, which seems a shame. It is my hope that DC and Dark Horse will revisit the idea from time to time. But not too often. DC has returned to the well that is Watchmen and Dark Knight Returns so often,they've run dry. I'd hate to see that happen here. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Cameron McFarland Dec 21, 2017

    Visually I do have one gripe, and this is only relevant to the art snobs out there, but the pages tend to focus on earthy tones and largely it feels like a Conan the Barbarian story. On occasion we see Dianna dressed in her bright red and blue outfit, and it feels out of place. The design of her costume is very modern and the colors sort of pop in a way that I don't believe is intended to draw your focus so immediately. Again, I must admit this is very minute a complaint to have that not all readers will agree with, and if that's all I have to say then I'm left being reminded once again that I am truly a sucker for crossovers and punching drunk people in a bar.

    Gail was always a great Wonder Woman writer, but her talent here with the world of Conan is what really stands out in this series. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Christina Williams Dec 21, 2017

    In the newest release of Conan and Diana's tale, we find ourselves immersed into a plot that could steal the lives of hundreds. Diana still cannot reclaim her forgotten memories, and Conan clings to who he used to know instead of seeing the present. This issue pushes past the previous installments with fantastic art and writing. This mini series isn't one to take lightly. It's all around a great series that will hopefully lead to more cross-overs at this level. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Sean Blumenshine Dec 21, 2017

    This is a solid issue. The art is great with expressive characters and solid colors. There is a lot of fun dialogue between the characters and I like that Simone has taken the time to let the characters just talk. My only complaint is some of Conan's dialogue is obnoxious in terms of how he treats Diana but it doesn't kill the issue. It's an enjoyable read with fun characters and cool art. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jeremy Daw Dec 21, 2017

    In terms of pacing and the development of the overall plot, this issue is a little disappointing. That said, Simone's handling of these characters is assured and warm, and Lopresti's art is dynamic and expressive and generally rather beautiful. Although not particularly advancing the story all that much, this issue does nothing to derail it and there's actually a lot to enjoy here. This series is still recommended and I'm looking forward very much to seeing how it ends. Read Full Review

    A few flaws and a few side eyes doesn't keep me from enjoying this series though and 2018 will continue their adventures. Read Full Review
