That seems to be the first bit of major news coming out of C2E2… and it hasn’t even started yet!!!
Right now we need to treat this news as simply a rumor, but Rich Johnston is reporting on this, saying that the current Dark Horse Conan series will end with issue #25, and a new series, King Conan, will launch next year, written by legend Roy Thomas!
A creator of this legendary magnitude returning to a classic property is huge news, similar to Chris Claremont’s recent ongoing X-Men Forever series, or a hypothetical situation like a new Avengers book written by… well, Roy Thomas. In any case, Johnston also reports that Dark Horse presents will be returning next year as well.
Let’s get Barry Windsor-Smith on art please! Make it happen, Dark Horse!
