Announced 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.

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)!
