With the new Conan the Barbarian comic series only a few months away, Heroic Signatures and Titan Comics have released a heap of variant cover previews and a sneak peek at some of the interior art from the book. Conan the Barbarian #1 will release July 26, with a story by writer Jim Zub, artist Roberto De La Torre, and colorist José Villarrubia.
The interior art definitely looks the business:
Variants for the new Conan #1, the first since Heroic Signatures moved the license from Marvel Comics to Titan in 2022, include a wraparound map cover of the Hyborian Age, a retro cover by Patch Zircher, plus special work by Dan Panosian, Roberto De La Torre, Artgerm, Mike Mignola, and E.M. Gist.
