Third Eye Guide to Marvel’s Conan the Barbarian

Click here for the event info on FACEBOOK

It’s been decades since Marvel Comics published CONAN comics, and while there’s no doubt that Dark Horse did terrific things with the license, we gotta say: we are so stoked to see CONAN returning home in their brand new ongoing CONAN THE BARBARIAN monthly series.

Written by THOR, AVENGERS & SOUTHERN BASTARDS scribe JASON AARON, with art by the uber-talented MAHMUD ASRAR — this is looking to be the best CONAN has been in years!

Not since Marvel took over the Star Wars license, have we been this excited about a licensed comic series, and with the long, rich history and tradition Marvel has with delivering incredible CONAN comics (be it Buscema or Barry Windsor Smith — not to mention the many others — Marvel’s CONAN back catalog is legendary in its own right!), we just know that the return of Conan to Marvel is going to be extra special!

WHAT’S THE SCOOP ON THE NEW MARVEL CONAN THE BARBARIAN SERIES ?

OK, before we go any further: there really is no one more perfect to do a CONAN comic series than Jason Aaron.

Seriously: the work he’s done with THOR and the Asgard mythos over the last decade proves that he can do some serious sword-and-sorcery, and his creator-owned works like THE GODDAMNED, MEN OF WRATH, SOUTHERN BASTARDS and SCALPED show that he’s got an amazing way of telling tales where the lead characters are cast in moral shades of gray.

In other words: if you were wondering just how to make an awesome CONAN comic in 2018 — there’s only two things we can say: JASON. AARON.

And, then throw in the gorgeous artwork of the very talented Mahmud Asrar (UNCANNY X-MEN), and you’ve got yourself one of the best takes on the Cimmerian barbarian we’ve ever seen!

From an age undreamed…hither came Conan the Cimmerian, black-haired, sullen-eyed, sword in hand, a thief, a reaver, a slayer, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the jeweled thrones of the Earth under his sandaled feet…

Robert E. Howard’s creation returns to comics, in an epic tale as only MARVEL could bring you!

Conan’s travels have brought him to the far reaches of the unkown, from his birthplace in Cimmeria to the kingdom of Aquilonia and all in between.

As his fighting prowess allows him to carve his way through life, so too does it attract the forces of death!
