Getting My Pulp On With Conan the Slayer!

Conan_The_Slayer_1_variant - bannerAnnounced yesterday at ComicsPro 2016, I will be launching a new series of barbarian stories with CONAN THE SLAYER from Dark Horse! I’ll be joined by artist Sergio Davila to bring these stories of Robert E. Howard’s warrior to life.

Howard’s work has always meant a lot to me. The Conan tales have always been a fusion of sword and sorcery and horror that is just right up my alley, and my goal is to bring those sensibilities to this series in a big way.

Conan The Slayer #1 features a regular cover by Lee Bermejo and a 30th anniversary cover by Mark Schultz. It hits shelves July 13.

Conan the Slayer #1
Writer: Cullen Bunn
Artist: Sergio Dávila
Cover: Lee Bermejo
Variant: Mark Schultz (30th Anniversary Variant)

Alone, battle weary, and with nothing but his sword, Conan of Cimmeria faces his inevitable death in the arid wastes . . . but instead stumbles into a camp of Kozaki raiders. With a knife at his throat and a band of Turanian hunters at his back, will the half-dead barbarian find a new ally in the Kozaki chief? Kicking off a brand new story arc, penned by superstar writer Cullen Bunn (Harrow County) and with art by Sergio Davila (Red Sonja)!

More EMPTY MAN Secrets Revealed!



The idea for THE EMPTY MAN came to me while I was on a road trip. Long drives often put me in the “idea zone” (THE TOOTH and HELHEIM came to me on similar trips). I drove down a stretch of highway lined with an old, tangled barbwire fence. Every so often, I’d see a piece of tattered plastic sheeting that must have blown off the back of a truck. The sheets clung to the barbwire, and they flapped in the wind like strange phantoms. For some reason, the phrase “The Empty Man made me do it” popped into my head, and I couldn’t shake it. Now, several years later, I finally get to tell the story that sprung up from that weird phrase.

I took some time to talk to The Nerdist about the upcoming series. Check out the interview here.
