Written by Aaron with art by Asrar and colors by Matt Wilson, KING CONAN #1 arrives with the might of the Cimmerian's hallowed history behind it. "Well first off, with any Conan story I do, I'm always trying to pay honor and reverence to Robert E. Howard," Aaron told SYFY WIRE. "'The Life and Death of Conan' arc that I wrote for the kick-off of CONAN THE BARBARIAN was in every way meant as a tribute to the way Howard charted Conan's epic life.

"So even though we're charting some new territory with this KING CONAN story, I'm still trying to work in accordance with Howard's notes and thoughts on the later years of Conan's reign and life. This is the story of a Conan who has grown restless, as a king, as a natural born adventurer and as a father. I'm definitely looking to weave together all three of those roles into one epic saga, a tale that takes us from the throne of Aquilonia to an island of vultures and dark magic at the very edge of the known world."
