Marvel Comics has announced a second Conan comic book title, Savage Sword of Conan, from writer Gerry Duggan and artist Ron Garney.
In addition, Marvel has announced a series of Conan novellas to be printed as three-page serialized back-ups in all of Marvel's Conan comic books. The news came during Marvel's Next Big Thing panel during New York Comic Con 2018.
"My first job was in 7th grade, working part-time at a comics shop that needed help going through their inventory," Duggan told Marvel.com. "I fell in love with the classic Conan material that year. To be able to play in this sandbox now is a dream come true. I wrote my first 'By Crom!' into a script the other day, and I stopped for a moment to say, 'Oh… That feels as good as a SNIKT or a THWIP!'
Savage Sword of Conan #1 is due out in February 2019.
