Marvel’s Conan The Barbarian #1 by Jason Aaron and Mahmud A. Asrar

 

 

Highlights This Week: After announcing that they were getting the rights back to Robert E. Howard’s Conan character at the end of 2017, Marvel is finally releasing a new series this week called what else?, Conan The Barbarian #1! Popular writer Jason Aaron (Avengers, Thor) will be penning the new series, along with interior artist Mahmud Asrar (All-New X-Men) and cover artist Esad Ribic (Thor). According to Aaron “The big initial arc we’re doing in this new series is very much done in reverence to Robert E. Howard and those original stories. One of the things that initially pulled me into the character was the fact that with each story, Howard jumped to a different point in Conan’s life, where he was in a different setting, interacting with different characters and living a very different life. So, for this new series, instead of picking just one period from Conan’s life and doing stories set only within that, our opening 12-issue arc will thread together many different periods and aspects of Conan’s journey, from Cimmeria to Aquilonia and beyond. That’s why this story is called ‘The Life and Death of Conan’.” Also from Marvel, an all-new, more international take on The Champions #1 by Jim Zub and Steven Cummings; Immortal Hulk #11 finds everybody in Hell; Infinity Wars: Infinity #1 is a one-shot epilogue that introduces and new wielder of an Infinity Stone; Man Without Fear #1 begins a series of one-shots focusing on the other inhabitants of Hell’s kitchen and Star Wars Age of the Republic: Obi-Wan Kenobi #1 is the latest one-shot spanning the three trilogies! From DC, Heroes In Crisis #4 (of 9); the Red Cloud attacks in Action Comics #1006; Alfred’s attack send Batman to Arkham in Detective Comics #995 and  Aphrodite holds Steve Trevor captive in Wonder Woman #61!  And, Rick Remender and Greg Tocchini begin a new story arc in Image Comics’ Low #20!
