Conan is becoming the new Wolverine with the amount of comics he’s in. Marvel Comics has announced another new title, Conan: Battle for the Serpent Crown, debuting in February 2020. This new five-issue mini-series takes the Barbarian to places he’s never gone before. Does that mean space? Maybe. Conan: Battle for the Serpent Crown is written by Saladin Ahmed and illustrated by Luke Ross.
Writer Saladin Ahmed says:
Getting to write Conan the Barbarian taking on the Marvel Universe is a high-octane, widescreen dream gig for me. The 616 is a world full of unimaginably powerful treasures and absurdly wealthy kings — the perfect place for Conan to ply his trade as a warrior-thief. From Las Vegas to Atlantis, Conan will carve a path of plunder — and face some of the mightiest heroes and villains in the Marvel universe!
This new book has the Robert E. Howard character venturing deeper into the Marvel Universe meeting a wide variety of heroes and facing off against a number of villains, including Mephisto. His journey takes him to Las Vegas in search of the Serpent Crown of Atlantis.
Editor Mark Basso added:
Since being transported into the Marvel Universe in Avengers: No Road Home and Savage Avengers, Conan’s been drawn into his own adventures as he explores this strange new world, and now we’re going to get a look at one particular quest. Far from home, but far from helpless, this is Conan as you’ve never quite seen him before.
Conan: Battle for the Serpent Crown #1 features a cover by Guru-eFX. Look for it at your local comic shop in February 2020.
