    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison May 8, 2019

    The artwork by Mahmud Asrar and Matthew Wilson proves the equal of the story. The deserts of Hyboria have never looked quite so imposing and the first image of Conan, soaked in blood (most of it not his, naturally) is the most striking to come from this series so far. This book is everything a fan of sword and sorcery comics could dream of. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Adrian Care May 8, 2019

    Saying each installment of the series goes from strength to strength is selling it too short. At the rate, this title continues to improve it's destined to go down in comic book history as a monumental tenure on a property. The level of creativity both Aaron and Asrar, and the entire creative team have for the character is boundless. The psychology vies for dominance over the brutal and glorious action. Past creators who found fame working on Conan would be proud of the way Aaron carries the torch forward. Read Full Review

    Even though Aaron can be heavy on the dialogue at times, it's still very informative and helps the Cimmerian mature and evolve into something more than this brute that I assumed he always was before now. Asrar's art is detailed, stimulating, lively, and draws readers into the story while Wilson and Lanham guide fans throughout the issue with ease. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Christa Harader May 10, 2019

    Conan the Barbarian #6 delights with a look at the barbarian as he stands opposed to civilization, and a mean cliffhanger to boot. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Jamie Lovett May 8, 2019

    It's a story that feels very true to Robert E. Howard's idea concept of the barbarian and a solid read all around. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin May 8, 2019

    Conan #6 delivers another excellent, self-contained episode in Conan's life. It's drawn and written with formidable skill and it delivers plenty of straightforward power. But it also sharpens this series' simmering tension. Conan's development into the king who's destined to stand against the Crimson Witch is inevitable, but this series still hesitates to shine a spotlight on that development. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge May 10, 2019

    While the script could have been a bit leaner, Conan the Barbarian #6 proves Marvel is still doing right by our favorite Cimmerian. Read Full Review

    THE GOOD:

    -The art is still good here.

    -That first page with Conan was so cool.

    -The attack of the Stygians was a great scene.

    -Conan beating his challenger was awesome to see.

    -I don't think Conan was necessarily a strong character here, just a really badass one.

    THE BAD:

    -I wish this issue wasn't so inconsistent. Maybe that's the consequence of having a different story every issue. The last issue was bad, the ones before it great, this one mediocre.

    -I wish Jason Aaron would lay off the exposition.

    -This story was just kinda meh.

    -I'm getting so tired of seeing the Razazel storyline dragged on so damn long. I thought it woul more
