  • Conan The Barbarian Coming To Titan Comics In 2023

    Press release!


    (June 21, 2022) Global publisher Titan Comics and entertainment studio Heroic Signatures are excited to announce a new co-publishing venture for the Robert E. Howard publishing program of comics, graphic novels and re-mastered archives including the omnibus program previously published by Marvel Comics.

    The new line of originated comic books kicks-off with Howard’s most famous character, Conan the Barbarian, in a brand-new ongoing series launching in May 2023 - and will be part of Titan Comics Tenth Anniversary celebrations. In addition, several mini-series’ are in development that will feature Robert E. Howard’s rich tapestry of iconic heroes.

    This news follows last year’s announcement that Titan’s book division are continuing the legacy of Conan with Heroic Signatures in all-new novels, short stories, and illustrated art books - beginning this Fall 2022, to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the character. Conan: Blood of the Serpent novel - the first in a series of new standalone adventures - hits bookstores from October 18, 2022, followed by Conan the Barbarian: The Official Story of the Film - a behind-the-scenes hardback retrospective book - on November 1, 2022.

    In 1932, visionary pulp writer Robert E. Howard ushered in a new genre of sword-and-sorcery with Conan, in the pages of American pulp magazine, Weird Tales. In the fantastical Hyborian Age, the Cimmerian’s wandering adventures featured many thrilling, often vicious, battles with his fearsome enemies. In 2022, the character of Conan – now celebrating his 90th anniversary - continues to captivate audiences across all areas of popular culture including movies, video games, novels, comic books, TV, and soon the streaming world, as a new Netflix series is currently in development.

    “We have been working with Titan for a year on the prose side and established a good foundation for expanding our business together. When it became clear that Heroic Signatures would publish our own comics it was natural to partner with a team that we have known for decades. Their expertise in publishing is stellar and we couldn’t be more excited to launch a barbarian horde of titles like Conan, Solomon Kane, Dark Agnes, and many more together.” said Fredrik Malmberg, President of Heroic Signatures.

    “Following on from the Conan fiction and illustrated books Titan Books is publishing this year with Heroic Signatures, we are very excited to be extending our relationship with our longstanding colleagues, Fred and Jay and their incredible team, to include Comics, Graphic Novels and Archive Editions through Titan Comics, for all the Robert E Howard properties which we will be launching in 2023.” said Titan Comics and Titan Books co-Publishers Vivian Cheung and Nick Landau.

    The comic publishing program will begin in May 2023 with the launch of Conan the Barbarian. This program will be supported by book distribution through Penguin Random House, in comic shops through Diamond Comic Distributors and day-and-date on all major digital platforms.

        For immediate release


        Heroic Signatures and Titan Comics are pleased to announce the launch of a new Conan mini-series, CONAN THE BARBARIAN: BATTLE OF THE BLACK STONE. This four-issue series is written by critically praised CONAN THE BARBARIAN writer, Jim Zub (Dungeons & Dragons), with art by the talented Jonas Scharf (Dark X-Men, Basilisk).

        Conan of Cimmeria is haunted by shadows, living nightmares connected to a mysterious eye symbol etched in Black Stone. An unspeakable evil looms over the Hyborian Age and every age connected to it... And it will take more than a lone barbarian to stop its relentless march upon time, space, and sanity.

        CONAN THE BARBARIAN: BATTLE OF THE BLACK STONE continues from the Free Comic Book Day special issue, where the strange Black Stone sigil revealed itself across space and time to multiple iconic Robert E. Howard characters, including Conan himself, Solomon Kane, and Dark Agnes. Readers can expect to find out more in THE SAVAGE SWORD OF CONAN #4 before the release of CONAN THE BARBARIAN: BATTLE OF THE BLACK STONE #1 in September 2024.

        On the upcoming series, writer Jim Zub says: "Battle of the Black Stone uses story threads we've been weaving in right from the start, from last year's Conan the Barbarian #0 Free Comic Day issue and our entire first year."

        "The mysteries and powers of the Black Stone are one of the pillars I put into my original proposal for the series and, now that we have momentum, we can really go all out in telling this epic tale of pulp-inspired adventure across the ages. Black Stone is a mysterious material that showed up in multiple Robert E. Howard prose stories and we're using it to link not just Conan's Hyborian age to Kull's Thurian age, but other points in time and characters from those eras as well."

        Issue #1 goes on sale September 4th 2024, with sensational covers by Gerado Zaffino, Sedat Oezgen, Stuart Sayger, Samwise Didier, and Tony Fleecs. Fans can pick up a copy from their local comic shop and Forbidden Planet for UK & Europe.
