Jim Zub Graduates to Marvel’s Conan The Barbarian Ongoing Series in February

Jim Zub is having a strange year, apparently.

Can’t argue with that. But he is also the new ongoing writer on Conan The Barbarian, a title he has been jonesing to write at Marvel. He has written the character extensively at Dark Horse Comics…

He handled all the Conan scenes in the Avengers weekly No Road Home and then he wrote Savage Sword Of Conan

He wrote the Conan: Serpent War event and…

…as of February, as revealed on Marvel’s Pull List video, he’ll be writing the main Conan The Barbarian for Marvel Comics from #13 with artist Roge Antonio.

Conan The Barbarian #13

Unfamiliar with the language Conan inadvertently agrees to be the latest entrant to the Great Crucible. The people of the city support their foreign champion but what will Conan sacrifice to overcome this ordeal?

UPDATE: Here’s the cover and official solicit text:
