Truman and Giorello bring Howard’s barbarian to life again!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: MILWAUKIE, OR— Dark Horse Comics announces the return of a fan-favorite Conan creative team: Writer Timothy Truman, artist Tomás Giorello, and colorist José Villarrubia are set to expand on Robert E. Howard’s unfinished “Wolves beyond the Border” tale!
King Conan grows weary of the crown. When an old soldier visits him with talk of a cursed relic and rumors of Pictish tribes preparing a full-scale invasion on Aquilonia’s borders, Conan eagerly embarks on what could be his final adventure!
King Conan: Wolves beyond the Border #1 (of 4) is in stores December 23, 2015. Preorder your copy today at your local comic shop.
Praise for Timothy Truman, Tomás Giorello, and José Villarrubia:
“With both King Conan: The Scarlet Citadel and King Conan: The Phoenix on the Sword Truman, Giorello, and Villarrubia have been making some of the greatest Conan adaptations ever made.”—Comics Bulletin
“This comic really makes me remember what it was that originally drew me to the Barbarian. The sense of fun, larger than life gonzo action, imaginative storytelling, and a kind of high fantasy approach that’s grounded in big characters and 80s machismo that’s just infectiously delicious; highly recommended.”—Front Towards Gamer
“This book is dirty, nasty, gritty, and quite possibly the best Conan book Dark Horse Comics has ever put out.”—Newsarama
King Conan is a triumph of execution, that places worthwhile odds within our hero’s epic quest. Highly recommended.”—Unleash the Fanboy
