Conan Comic Solicitation Reveals Much About The Film

For some reason, the upcoming Conan the Barbarian 3D is still doppled with the fog of secrecy, with some major characters yet to appear in publicity images, only a very wishy-washy teaser trailer and no official plot blurb worth a jot.

There’s a tie-in comic book adaptation coming, however, and we’ve received details of what it will entail through the Dark Horse solicitations. This reveals a few key details that were as yet unreported. Nothing spoilery, just the sort of “official synopsis” level of detail. Have a look for yourself:

Adapted from the new film by writer Stuart Moore, penciller and cover artist Gabriel Guzman [cover art at head of post], and with inks by Jason Gorder
On sale July 20, FC, 64 pages, $6.99, One-shot

After witnessing his wife burned at the stake, warlord Khalar Zym sets out on a quest to find the mythical Mask of Acheron, an ancient artifact that will bring his beloved back to life. In his search across the lands, Zym destroys a village in northern Cimmeria, where a boy born of battle survives and is cast out into the world, alone.

Years later, Zym crosses paths again with the boy who survived – Conan. He must now contend with this barbarian nuisance who is now set on vengeance for the slaughter of his village. Zym and his daughter, Marique, eventually clash with Conan in an epic final battle, the outcome of which will decide the fate of the world.

Based on Conan the Barbarian, the new major motion picture starring Jason Momoa, Rose McGowan, and Ron Perlman.

So now we know.
