When Brian Wood left DC Comics in 2011 after years of exclusive work for the publisher, his fans reasonably hoped to hear about some exciting new things coming soon from the writer.
A brand-new Conan the Barbarian series, adapting classic story "Queen of the Black Coast," certainly fits the bill. Even more exciting: for the series, Wood is reuniting with Demo artist Becky Cloonan.
Here's what Wood told Newsarama about his take on Conan: "He has feelings, something a certain population of diehard Conan fans do not like to acknowledge (I peeked at a couple message boards). Conan is also a young guy at the time of this story, in the early twenties. This is formative time, emotionally speaking. His relationship with Bêlit was some seriously, seriously turbulent stuff, lots of highs and lows and exciting times and crushing blows."
