In light of recent news concerning Marvel taking over the Conan license in America, there is good news for fans of the famous barbarian:
After the success of its recent Elric adaptation, one of the largest French publishers Glénat has decided to adapt 12 Robert E. Howard Conan stories into graphic novels.
Each adaptation will be from a different creative team, including the folk at CreART.
There won’t be any kind of “standard” look for Conan’s appearance. Each creative team will draw the Cimmerian their way.
The first will be published in May, adapting Howard’s early Conan work, The Black Colossus as a comic by Vincent Brugeas and Toulhoat.Personally, I can't wait to import the English translations from the U.K.. And while I'm dreaming about public domain comics, can someone do a decent Northwest Smith or Jirel of Joiry series in the States?
