    In January 2019, Conan makes his triumphant return to Marvel Comics in the all-new CONAN THE BARBARIAN series with an acclaimed creative team of writer Jason Aaron and artist Mahmud Asrar. Both creators will deliver new tales of the sword-slashing hero, and they are joined by cover artist Esad Ribic (Fantastic Four, Secret Wars, Marvel Legacy) and Eisner Award-winning colorist Matt Wilson (Runaways, The Mighty Thor.)

    “I've literally been preparing for this job since I was 13 and discovered my first Robert E. Howard Conan paperback in a used bookstore in my little hometown of Jasper, Alabama,” said Aaron. “I devoured every Howard book I could find after that, and I've been making up Conan stories in my head ever since. Now I finally get to do that for real, alongside the amazing Mahmud Asrar. So this opportunity means an awful lot to me, and I'm cherishing every blood-splattered, spider-haunted second of it.”

    “Growing up, Conan was one of the first comic books I've read. It's partly responsible in making me a lifelong comic book reader,” said Asrar. “In fact, it's the first book where I've noticed the names of the creators and that being a comic book artist was something I could do for a living. Now, years later, I get the chance to draw the book myself and do it with the amazing Jason Aaron. I couldn't be happier to tell epic new tales of the Cimmerian - to continue the legacy that will hopefully make a mark on readers, just like the original comics did for me.”

    “I can’t wait for readers to see the epic scope of the first story lined up for CONAN,” shared editor Mark Basso. “Like our illustrious writer and artist, my intro to Conan came in the form of an old paperback that magically found its way to me as a kid, and this team is harnessing all of that love and respect for the character’s history while expanding the Hyborian mythos in a way that’s really never been done before.”

    “These past months have been an exciting whirlwind for us and the folks at Marvel, going through creative teams with passion for the Cimmerian,” added Fredrik Malmberg, President & CEO of Cabinet Entertainment. “Jason and Mahmud are crafting a really strong story, it’s amazing to see the process and pages coming through. Esad Ribic’s covers evoke the classic Conan, yet with his own distinct and personal freshness. Crom!”

    This January, be prepared to witness Conan’s exploits, magic, and mayhem in an all-new series, starting with CONAN THE BARBARIAN #1!
