‘Conan the Barbarian’ comics heading to Titan May 2023

Conan the Barbarian comics will return in May 2023.

In a surprise move, Marvel Comics is officially losing the Conan the Barbarian license after 2022, but fear not Conan fans, Titan Comics is swooping in to publish new tales soon. Titan Comics and entertainment studio Heroic Signatures are joining forces in a co-publishing venture which will include comics, graphic novels, and re-mastered archives including omnibus collections first published by Marvel.

The first series will launch in May 2023 in a brand-new ongoing series that will be part of Ittan Comics’ Tenth Anniversary celebrations.

“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.

(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.
