    KING CONAN #5 takes a slight break from the action to build out Thoth-Amons character with surprising depth and complexity. The pacing is excellent, the narration hits the right tone for this material, and the art is spectacular. Read Full Review

    While this is very much an issue that is here to help to bridge the gap between the stellar ‘Conan versus Conan' showdown and what promises to be a stunning finale, there's still a lot of great content here. Aaron and Asrar is a partnership made in comic book heaven, and their work on Conan over the past few years has been damn near faultless, in my eyes at least. As such, this issue still comes highly recommended, although if you've read any of their previous Conan collaborations, you're pretty much guaranteed to already have it in your pull list.
