Aaron, Asrar and Wilson return to the Hyborian Age in KING CONAN this December

This December, Jason Aaron, Mahmud Asrar and Matt Wilson are set to return to the saga of Conan the Barbarian in King Conan #1.

The team previously worked together on the 2019 relaunch of Conan at Marvel, and this new series will see a restless King Conan “taking the first step of [his] journey from Aquilonia, as an old and terrible danger threatens to end the saga of the Cimmerian once and for all.”

Speaking about the series, Aaron said “I knew as soon as Mahmud, Matt and I finished “The Life and Death of Conan” in CONAN THE BARBARIAN, one of the absolute personal highlights from my career as a comic book writer, that I wasn’t done hanging out with everyone’s favorite Cimmerian.”

He continued, adding “As King Conan rode into the sunset at the end of that story, with his son, Prince Conn, by his side, I always knew where I wanted that story to take us next. Now at last comes that next chapter, as Mahmud, Matt and I reunite to reveal a pivotal moment in Conan’s life as a king, as a father, as a mortal enemy of snake-worshipping Stygian wizards and as a barbarian who was born to chase the wind, even to the ends of the earth.”

“By Crom, we’re finally bringing the barbarian-turned-king to the readers,” Asrar said. “It’s criminal how much I’m enjoying drawing each panel in this book considering what we’re putting him through.”

KING CONAN #1 goes on sale in print and digital formats on December 15th.
