Only a few years after Marvel acquired the Conan license, it appears that the publishing rights have once more shifted as Titan Comics, in partnership with Heroic Signatures, will begin publishing Conan comics in 2023. Creative details for the brand-new ongoing Conan the Barbarian comic were announced
Launching in comic shops and digital devices in July 2023, the brand-new Conan the Barbarian ongoing comic will be written by acclaimed and long-time Conan comic book scribe Jim Zub (Thunderbolts, Uncanny Avengers), and will feature the stunning art of Roberto De La Torre (King-Size Conan, Iron Man: Director of S.H.I.E.L.D) and colorist José Villarrubia (Promethea, Sweet Tooth, Cuba: My Revolution). This will kick off a brand-new, exhilarating series of comics of characters from across the Conan and wider Robert E. Howard mythos!
This isn’t the first time for Zub or De La Torre working on the Hyborian warrior, both having collaborated on the previous Conan title for Marvel. As the old saying goes, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. This news isn’t a complete surprise as it was already announced in July at SDCC during the Conan 90th anniversary panel.
Moreover, Titan and Heroic Signatures also announced that the hugely popular omnibus line – previously published by Marvel Comics – will continue with the next installment, Savage Sword of Conan Volume 9.
