    Kang The Conqueror #2 continues the young Kang's journey as he appears in ancient Egypt and faces his adult counterpart, Rama-Tut. The story of the young Nathaniel trying to defy his fate in becoming the futuristic conqueror is a compelling story as he uses the history of his own life and Earth to his advantage. It builds this divergent rebellious persona for him while sowing the seeds of the time-traveling super-villain. The art and action by Carlos Magno and Espen Grundetjern looks amazing as they show the young Kang in action in ancient Egypt. The story leaves on an interesting cliffhanger that will have Marvel fans excited to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    His words speak to powerful themes and potent conflicts, but they are only realized as a pitch never in the action. As a result Kang lies limp on the page as his ambitions seek to pair him with more popular characters, but it all looks quite nice. Read Full Review
