Conan was the glimmering light of the Bronze Age of comics under the Marvel banner. And since then has gone on to exist under other imprints including Dark Horse Comics.

Now the Cimmerian’s travels bring him back to familiar stomping grounds, and Marvel teases the resurgence of the infamous Barbarian with Conan The Barbarian, The Savage Sword of Conan and Age Of Conan series planned for 2019

In Conan The Barbarian, tells the tale of the time when the Cimmerian, as a younger man, faced and defeated a magical creature calling herself the Crimson Witch. And though he nearly cleaved her head from her body, she returned many years later during his reign as king of Aquilonia. The yarn promises to feature the death of Conan, but we’ll have to return month after month to see how he fairs!

Elsewhere, the upcoming Savage Sword Of Conan drama will begin with our hero adrift at sea only to be saved by pirates intent on exploiting him. These brigands will find themselves on the wrong end of Conan’s rage, as will anyone who stands between him and the treasure he soon seeks, including the death cult of Koga Thun.
