Announced earlier in the year by Marvel, they were “introducing” more of Robert E. Howard’s characters, such as Conan and Dark Agnes. Well as you know MCM Comic-Con London is currently going on so that means news, news, and more news. Following up from their announcement is more in-depth information on CONAN: Battle for the Serpent Crown. Now I realize that Conan is currently wreaking havoc with the Dark Avengers, however, we are in need of brand new adventures, and that’s what we are going to get! In these all-new adventures will yield an all-new angle for the barbarian, for instance, he’s headed to Las Vegas in search of the Serpent Crown and will take on the likes of familiar Marvel foes such Mephisto! At the helm of these adventures will be Saladin Ahmed (Black Bolt) writing, with Luke Ross (Savage Sword of Conan) will provide the art.
“Getting to write Conan the Barbarian taking on the Marvel Universe is a high-octane, widescreen dream gig for me,” says Ahmed. “The 616 is a world full of unimaginably powerful treasures and absurdly wealthy kings — the perfect place for Conan to ply his trade as a warrior-thief. From Las Vegas to Atlantis, Conan will carve a path of plunder — and face some of the mightiest heroes and villains in the Marvel universe!”
“Since being transported into the Marvel Universe in AVENGERS: NO ROAD HOME and SAVAGE AVENGERS, Conan’s been drawn into his own adventures as he explores this strange new world, and now we’re going to get a look at one particular quest,” says Editor Mark Basso. “Far from home, but far from helpless, this is Conan as you’ve never quite seen him before.”

CONAN wanders the desert, and as he reaches the city, no Stygian temple nor Vendyhan fortress greets him. No, something far stranger: the lights of Fabulous Las Vegas! Conan is far from home, and it’s time for him to tread the thrones of the Marvel Universe under his sandaled feet!
The City of Sin is just the beginning for Conan’s solo jaunt by Saladin Ahmed (BLACK BOLT, MILES MORALES: SPIDER-MAN) and Luke Ross (STAR WARS: ALLEGIANCE, SAVAGE SWORD OF CONAN), as the barbarian finds himself on a quest for a relic that predates even his Hyborian Age: the Serpent Crown of Atlantis! But will his battle for this crown earn Conan his own kingdom, or doom him to a nefarious trap set forth by MEPHISTO? Featuring a wide array of Marvel heroes and villains, this is an adventure you can’t afford to miss!
