Finally, Conan the Barbarian is getting his own Marvel event comic. A lot of people have been asking, what with Marvel publishing approximately seventeen monthly Conan comics since obtaining the license to do so earlier this year, why the beloved barbarian hasn’t gotten his own event yet. Marvel has heard and will now answer those demands with Serpent War, a four-part series launching in November that will truly show that Conan is part of the Marvel Universe by having him star in an event comic with an excessive amount of variant covers.
Chicken website ComicBook.com claims to have the EX-X-XCLUSIVE on this, even though it’s really kind of just confirming Bleeding Cool’s report from earlier this week that Marvel plans to bring Solomon Kane and Dark Agnes into their ever-expanding Conan comic lineup. Moon Knight will also join the event because he’s got nothing better going on right now.
Here’s what ComicBook.com had to say about it:

“WARRIORS ACROSS TIME DEFY THE ELDER GODS!
JAMES ALLISON will soon die. But it’s not his first death. He’s lived many lives, in many places – lives he can recall in vivid detail. But when an Elder God called the WYRM reaches across time to James, an ages-spanning quest begins! The serpent god SET plans to usher in an eternity of darkness, and only the chosen warriors across time and space have a hope of stopping him: CONAN THE BARBARIAN, SOLOMON KANE, DARK AGNES, and the man known as MOON KNIGHT!
In an unprecedented comics event, Robert E. Howard’s characters join forces along with Marvel’s Moon Knight, in an all-new saga built on REH and Marvel lore from across the ages!”
Conan: Serpent War hits comic stores this December, and you can check out our exclusive preview of the new series on the next slides!
And here’s what writer Jim Zub had to say about it:
Serpent War is a sprawling cross-dimensional epic bringing together legendary characters from the mind of Robert E. Howard with a bit of Marvel mayhem added in for good measure. The story I told in Savage Sword was a straight forward sword & sorcery tale. This one is big, ambitious, and adventurous on a bigger stage. I hope Serpent War engages long-time Conan fans and also brings new readers on board to see what all the excitement is about.
Break out your checkbook for what’s sure to be an extra-priced landmark debut issue this December, true believers!
