During the Conan the Barbarian 90th Anniversary panel at Comic-Con International this week, Titan Comics announced that Jim Zub will write their upcoming Conan comic.
Zub has plenty of history with the character, having written the character at Marvel. Zub’s run will launch with a story during next year’s Free Comic Book Day, with the first issue coming in May of next year as well.
Titan is partnering with Heroic Signatures on the comic; Heroic manages the licenses for Robert E. Howard’s characters, including Conan and Solomon Kane. The announcement follows the news that Marvel will no longer publish new Conan material.
