What In The World Happened To The Geoff Darrow Conan 25 Cover?

Recently, Dark Horse heavily teased and promoted its upcoming wraparound cover to Conan #25 by Geof Darrow, scheduled for September, the last issue before the relaunch

And while official solicitations have yet to be released, I understand that the cover may have to be withdrawn. Robert E. Howard Properties has objected to it being… too.. violent. For a Conan book. Blimey. That's something.

Here's that cover in black and white and "gorious" colour.

Dark Horse did not respond to inquiries.
