Between 1970 and 2000, Marvel was home to several comics series based on Robert E. Howard’s popular barbarian. Roy Thomas, Barry Windsor-Smith, John Buscema, and Neal Adams were just a few of the luminaries to bring Conan’s adventures to comics.Dark Horse to Publish Classic Conan Comics”) and new comics about the brooding Cimmerian in 2003 (see “Dark Horse to Publish Conan Comic”).
Conan is a potent license. Comics, books, games, RPGs, and merchandise featuring the character have proven popular. Modiphius Entertainment recently beganreleasing new sourcebooks for its Conan RPG (see “Engage the Many Sides of Conan in New Sourcebooks”). DC and Dark Horse have partnered on Wonder Woman / Conan, a six-issue crossover that launched in September to decent reviews (see “Amazon Vs. Barbarian”).
