Seeking Revenge & Truth In Age Of Conan: Valeria

by James Ferguson

The Age of Conan expands this August with a new mini-series filled with a quest for vengeance.  Marvel Comics has announced Age of Conan: Valeria, a five-issue mini-series from writer Meredith Finch and artist Aneke, following Robert E. Howard’s classic character as she treads the kingdoms of the Hyborian Age in search of revenge.

Writer Meredith Finch says:

Robert E. Howard and the Conan universe have always been ahead of their time in terms of creating strong, empowered female characters, and Valeria is certainly no exception. It was my privilege to craft the origin story of such a formidable woman, even by today’s standards.  When combined with the fantastical storytelling of Aneke, this is sure to be a book Conan fans new and old won’t be able to put down.

Age of Conan: Valeria #1 features a cover by Jay Anacleto.

Editor Mark Basso adds:

Meredith’s crafted a gripping tale, brought to life on the page under the wonderful pen of Aneke, that’s going to pull you deep into a Hyborian age mystery as Valeria confronts her past to forge her path to the future. It’s going to be like nothing you’ve seen yet from Marvel’s Conan comics.

Age of Conan: Valeria kicks off in August.
