    PopCultHQ - Adrian Care Mar 6, 2019

    The quality of this book transcends genre, publisher, and our current times to become a complete reading experience. Whether you've read issues prior or this is your first taste, this book is pure quality. Jason Aaron's guiding hand has been the perfect first touch to entrust the newly licensed character with. Marvel is really succeeding with the titles that it's taking different turns with and this sits comfortably, if not slightly above, Immortal Hulk and Daredevil as the company's must-read titles. With work this great, it's no wonder there's four other Conan titles on release. Read Full Review

    This is by far the most unconventional Conan story that Aaron has told and the best issue of the new series to date. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Mar 7, 2019

    Gerardo Zaffino's art is detailed, beautiful and brutal. There are so many amazing action panels throughout that the savagery of the character is brought forth for the reader. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - John Jack Mar 11, 2019

    The art by Gerardo Zaffino is stellar, just great. It was a little sketchy at points but looks great. The lion in particular looks so good, I love it. There are a couple splash pages that I would seriously consider poster worthy, and the panel with Conan flying through the air attacking the guys on the dock is totally getting snagged as a new cover photo.

    This book is an entertaining one shot that fits in nicely with the reams of Conan stories that have come before it. Read Full Review

    Conan The Barbarian (2019-) #4 gives us an entertaining story of Conan acting as a vigilante, with great art that matches the tone. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Mar 8, 2019

    Jason Aaron's script is forged of the Howard mold, with its central idea taken from the first line Conan ever spoke in any short story. Alas, the art is less inspired, and is barely legible even at the best of times. Read Full Review
