Conan the Barbarian: Vengeance in Asgalun collects issues #72-88 of Marvel’s original adaptation of the dark-maned Cimmerian from 1976-1977, and sees Conan team with Bêlit, the Queen of the Black Coast, to reclaim her throne.
The imminent loss of the Conan the Barbarian license hasn’t slowed Marvel down from continuing to release collections of the Cimmerian’s adventures.
Titan Comics will take over the Conan the Barbarian license from Marvel Comics this fall and enter into a co-publishing agreement with Heroic Signatures, the custodian of all of Robert E. Howard’s intellectual property rights.
Conan the Barbarian has packed his bags and is leaving his original comic home once again at the end of 2022.
Although fans may remember the 1980 debut of the tales of Conan’s reign being titled King Conan, the upcoming omnibus entitled Conan the King: The Original Marvel Years Omnibus Vol. 1 is sure to bring back some good memories.
Conan the Barbarian returns to the world of prose fiction for the first time since 2003 with S.M. Stirling’s upcoming novel Conan: Blood of the Serpent for Titan Books this October.
