Marvel bringing back more Robert E. Howard characters

September 16th, 2019 by Marc Comments

Earlier this year, the Conan franchise made its grand return to Marvel and since then fans have been thrilled by titles like Conan The Barbarian, Savage Sword of Conan, and Age of Conan: Belit and Valeria.

With both Conan the Barbarian #1 and Conan the Barbarian Vol 1: The Life and Death Of Conan Book One debuting in the top ten of their respective markets, it was clear that readers were happy to be back in the Age of Hyboria!

Now, Marvel is pleased to announce that more characters from the mind of Conan creator Robert E. Howard will be making their way to the Marvel Comics! True Believers should keep an eye out for the likes of Dark Agnes, Solomon Kane, and a few more surprises in upcoming Marvel books.

“Our readers cannot get enough of Conan, and luckily, we have plenty more to give them,” said Editor Mark Basso. “We’re very excited for readers and the heroes of the Marvel Universe to meet or reunite with more characters from the legendary Robert E. Howard mythos!”

“With their world-building and storytelling expertise, we’re happy that Marvel now will go deeper into the Howardverse to explore more of all his fantastic characters, and spinning new, exiting yarns,” said Joakim Zetterberg, Executive Vice President at Conan Properties.

Details on where you can follow the adventures of these exciting new additions to the Marvel Universe will be revealed at a later date!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
