The press release follows:
Media Release — Global publisher Titan Comics and entertainment studio Heroic Signatures are delighted to reveal that the newest Conan the Barbarian comics will be debuting as part of Free Comic Book Day in 2023!
This FCBD edition of Conan the Barbarian (available at comic book retailers on May 6, 2023) kicks off the brand-new ongoing comic, beginning July 2023. Conan the Barbarian, 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).
Readers will experience the legendary Conan like never before in this comic shop exclusive primer. On the eve of his first major battle, young Conan of Cimmeria pictures a life beyond the borders of his homeland and yearns for a life undreamt of in his small village. Visions of future allies and unspeakable evils he will eventually encounter throughout his fabled career fill his mind as he takes his first fateful steps toward a life of great adventure in the Hyborian Age!
Writer Jim Zub says, “My life was shaped by sword & sorcery stories, especially the work of Robert E. Howard. Every chance I’ve had to contribute to the Hyborian Age has been a gift and this one, relaunching Conan the Barbarian with Heroic Signatures and Titan Comics with modern masters Rob De La Torre and José Villarrubia collaborating on epic artwork, is the biggest and best present I could imagine. On Free Comic Book Day we’ll give readers and retailers a first look at a young Conan in the legendary Battle at Venarium as he decides to set forth and find the wider world and then, in summer 2023, we’ll fully unleash epic high adventure in an age undreamed of. It’s going to be big, bold and bloody and I can’t wait for all of you to see it.”
