Coming in June!

Written by GAIL SIMONE

What makes one a legend? How do legends carve their names into history, when countless others are forgotten? Wonder Woman and Conan the Barbarian are destined by the fates to be legendary, but when their stories collide, will both emerge victorious, or will the fickle gods cut their lives short?

Collects the entire six-issue miniseries. Co-published with Dark Horse Comics.

Hardcover, Full Color, 160 pages, $24.99, On sale June 13.

Conan: Le Colosse Noir

The French adaptation of Conan: Le Colosse Noir will be released in Brazil in September.

The Publisher Mythos Editora announced the launch of the French Comic Book Conan in September. Originally published by French Éditions Glénat BD, each edition compiles two news from the character created by Robert E. Howard.

The idea of the collection is to use Howard's stories as a basis for artists to apply their personal vision of du. Graphic novels should be in the gold collection of mythos editions, in large formats and luxury finishes.

The first edition will present the adaptation of Black Colossus, with the screenplay by Vincent Brugeas and the drawings of Ronan Toulhoat and a version of beyond the black river, written by Mathieu Gabella and designed by Anthony Jean.

The price hasn't been revealed yet. More information when available.

Cover of the French Edition is shown below.

Thanks to Patrice Louinet for the tip!

Project Pride

The following was posted by Project Pride on their Facebook page.

Jeff Shanks, archeologist for the National Park Service, will soon be heading up a team that will excavate the storm/root cellar on the property of the Howard Museum. The goal is to have this project completed before the REH Days in June. Many things have been tossed into that underground room over time, so there’s no telling what they will discover. It’s been said that Dr. Howard’s shingle is down there! What do you think they will find?

Conan the Barbarian TV Series In Works At Amazon

New post at Deadline: Hollywood.

Slave, Soldier, and King: A Make 100 Anthology

This Kickstarter is meant to let future generations enjoy Robert E. Howard's first forays into the genre of sword and sorcery, the precursor to the famous Conan the Barbarian. Although Solomon Kane and Conan, his more famous works, are still in print, Kull of Atlantis has fallen through the cracks. With your help, we will be able to print a paperback containing the first Kull stories, plus The Phoenix on the Sword, featuring all new artwork by professional illustrator Stefan Poag. This will finally allow anyone, not just collectors, to enjoy these tales in print.

After launching my Kickstarter to fund a reprint of REH's The Shadow Kingdom, The Mirrors of Tuzun Thune, and The Phoenix on the Sword, I was contacted by someone close to John Severin's family and I am now proud to announce that my anthology will include a selection of works by John Severin (illustrator of Marvel Co mics' Conan the Barbarian, Dark Horse Comics' Conan, and many other projects)! I am honored to be able to include his work in my anthology, especially due to his vast portfolio of work.

Print copies of the anthology are just $12 plus shipping and digital copies are just $3.

This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Mon, February 19 2018.
