This December, Marvel will launch Conan: Serpent War – a limited series that will bring in not just Robert E. Howard characters Conan, Solomon Kane, and Black Agnes, but Marvel’s own Moon Knight as well.
The four-issue time-traveling tale will be written by Jim Zub with art from Scot Eaton, Stephen Segovia, and more.
“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,” Zub told Comicbook.com, who announced Serpent War. “The story I told in [Savage Sword of Conan] 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.”
“Like many of the super hero comics I write, Serpent War has deep ties to past Marvel stories and moves the ball forward with continuity in mind, but also has all the pieces new readers need to get on board,” Zub continued. “At the end of Serpent War, Moon Knight and other characters are altered in some crucial ways, and that will definitely have an effect down the road. Beyond saying that, I don’t want to tip my hand too much.”
Here’s the solicitation for the first two issues of Conan: Serpent War, along with an array of covers. Look for Marvel’s full December 2019 solicitations later this month.
