Dark Horse Comics is teaming up with writer Brian wood and artist Becky Cloonan to bring Conan the Barbarian back to comics with an adaptation of “Queen of the Black Coast”. The recent film might not have done so hot, but I think fans of the character will (or should) give the new series a chance. I’ve been a big fan of Conan in all of its forms and I like that “Black Coast” shows a different time for the character, read the series description:
In this sweeping adaptation of Robert E. Howard’s fan-favorite “Queen of the Black Coast,” Conan turns his back on the civilized world and takes to the high seas alongside the pirate queen Belit, setting the stage for an epic of romance, terror, and swashbuckling. This is Conan as you’ve never seen him, with the combination of one of Robert E. Howard’s greatest tales and the most dynamic creative team in comics!
