Everybody in the comic book world better hang onto their seats, because Dark Horse Comics is bringing us another great adaptation from the legendary mind of Robert E. Howard with Conan the Barbarian #1; written by Brian Wood (DMZ, Northlanders), and illustrated by Becky Cloonan (East Coast Rising, American Virgin), who have worked together previously, most notably on Vertigo’s Demo. The solicit reads as follows:

CONAN THE BARBARIAN #1 (MASSIMO CARNEVALE COVER)

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 BĂȘlit, 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!

* A perfect jumping-on point for new readers!

*A bold, fresh take on the Cimmerian.

* “Queen of the Black Coast” is the most-requested Conan adaptation!

Here are some preview pages to get your mouth watering!

Looks pretty good, eh? I for one cannot wait to see this adaptation, because although I know most of the adventures, new perspectives still get me excited! Look for this in stores this February!
