Conan – Red Sonja #2 Reviews

Conan Red Sonja #2 arrived in comic shops this week, continuing our epic meeting of these two legendary sword & sorcery characters. Let’s see what critics thought of the second chapter…


All-Comic: 4/5 “Gail Simone and Jim Zub have seamlessly blended these two characters together into, arguably, one of REH’s greatest Conan adventures and you can’t help but give them a round of applause for a job well done.”

Comic Hype: 4.5/5 “Definitely one of the most exciting adaptations I have recently read with these characters, it pulls no punches and is highly recommended.”

Doom Rocket: 8.5/10 “Writers Gail Simone and Jim Zub imbue this comic with the optimal amount of humor and thrill with dialogue that is both stylized and clever.”

Fandom Post: “The pacing is excellent, the characters are true to themselves, and the themes they play with are interesting.”

Fangirl Nation: “Gail Simone and Jim Zub continue to bring tremendous energy and sword-and-sorcery fun in Red Sonja Conan #2.”

Geeks of Doom: “Artist Dan Panosian should draw every issue of Conan. And Red Sonja. And, just about every other book that I read. His art is unbelievable!”

My Geeky, Geeky Ways: “The artwork by Dan Panosian and Dave Stewart is truly epic. Panosian adopts a rough, visceral style worthy of the setting. “

Newsarama: 9/10 “Don’t miss out on one of the best comics of the week.”

The Pullbox: “Gail Simone and Jim Zub have a great handle on the personalities of two of pulp fictions greatest heroes. The dialogue between Conan and Sonja shows the camaraderie of two kindred spirits.”

The Read Pile: “Still just as fun as the first issue. It fills me with a sense of glee.”

Rock! Shock! Pop!: “This is great solid sword and sandal type comic entertainment and even passive fans of the genre or characters should give it go.”

Shadowhawk’s Shade: 10/10 ” The art here is unbelievably good, same as before. There’s a certain angular stylishness to the pencils, and the colours are often slightly muted, adding to the whole mood of the whole thing”

Super Team AU: 8.2/10 “For two writers and one artist, there is a lot of synergy felt between the two mediums here. Panosian draws the scenes beautifully and rustically, each page stained with a parchment-yellow.”

TM Stash: 10/10 “The real deal here is that we have a story worthy of these characters, and a tale that lives up to the high expectations one should have when bringing together such an all-star group of creators”
