Conan the Barbarian Embarks on a "Globe-Trotting Adventure" in 'Conan: Battle for the Serpent Crown' #1
Saladin Ahmed's new Conan story is a "noir story at heart" with plenty of Marvel crossovers!
Conan the Barbarian has traveled the globe, space, and time so what kind of new adventure could he possibly take now? In CONAN: BATTLE FOR THE SERPENT CROWN #1, written by Saladin Ahmed with art by Luke Ross, Conan is far from the Hyborian Age and smack in the middle of Las Vegas! He finds himself in the City of Sin on a quest to find an ancient relic that predates his own time and may grant him his very own kingdom. The issue hits stands on Wednesday, February 5, but you can see a preview below!
But this story doesn't stop with issue #1! Here's a preview of what's to come in CONAN: BATTLE FOR THE SERPENT CROWN from Saladin Ahmed himself!
“CONAN: BATTLE FOR THE SERPENT CROWN is a globe-trotting, high-octane adventure that sees Conan matching wits and crossing swords with modern-day Marvel heroes and villains from Vegas to Wakanda to Atlantis. It's full of easter eggs and cameos and cool 616 crossovers. But it's also a noir story at heart – a story about what it means to be a thief and a killer in a world of brightly-costumed heroes.
"This March [in issue #3], Conan will tread the jeweled thrones of the Marvel Universe beneath his sandaled feet -- or die trying!”
