In South America, Conan finds himself enslaved - which is typically bad news for those attempting to do the enslaving! But these enslavers come from beyond the stars, and they’ve got a singular and grisly end in store for the Cimmerian - one that only Venom can help him avoid!

    There's grindhouse, and then there's Savage Avengers grindhouse. This book is outrageously over the top and entertaining in its delivery of violence. It literally one-ups itself multiple times. It's great fun and visually absorbing too. This is rowdy, outlandish escapism at its finest. Read Full Review

    Look, I am not going to tell you Empyre: Savage Avengers #1 is a great story (I don't know if there is even much of one here). You also don't need to read this to stay up to date on what is happening with “Empyre”. But I will tell you, if you want a story that feels like a buddy-cop movie from the '80s, then you should pick this up. If you want to have some fun with Conan the Barbarian and Venom, then look no further. Also, I mean, it has Greg Smallwood on interior art, and we don't get that often, so if you like great comic-book art you kind of have to grab this. Read Full Review

    Granted, this is not necessary to Empyre or as a single issue in the least, but if you like Conan team-ups, you're going to enjoy this little detour quite a bit. Read Full Review
