Age of Conan: Valeria – Finally, Another Conan Comic from Marvel in August

With only Conan the Barbarian, Savage Sword of Conan, Savage Avengers, and Age Of Conan: Belit, Queen Of The Black Coast currently in stores, a lot of people are wondering why Marvel doesn't really cash in on that Conan license they recently acquired. Well, Marvel has heard these concerns and responded with another Conan comic, Age of Conan: Valeria #1, by Meredith Finch and Aneke, coming this August. Unfortunately, this miniseries will replace Belit, which is also a miniseries, so there will still be just 4 Conan titles on stands. Hopefully, Marvel will rectify this situation by launching another 10 Conan books before the year is out.

Check out the press release below for more details.

AGE OF CONAN: VALERIA #1 Seeks Revenge and Truth in All-New Story!

New York, NY—May 17, 2019—This August, Marvel invites you to journey into the Hyborian Age with one of Robert E. Howard's classic heroes! Witness a young and formidable Valeria, in a time before the fan-favorite "Red Nails" Conan story, as she treads the kingdoms of the Hyborian Age in search of revenge in an all-new story from Meredith Finch (Wonder Woman, Savage Sword of Conan) and artist Aneke (Red Sonja, DC's Bombshells)!

"Robert E. Howard and the Conan universe have always been ahead of their time in terms of creating strong, empowered female characters, and Valeria is certainly no exception," shared writer Meredith Finch. "It was my privilege to craft the origin story of such a formidable woman, even by today's standards. When combined with the fantastical storytelling of Aneke, this is sure to be a book Conan fans new and old won't be able to put down."

"Meredith's crafted a gripping tale, brought to life on the page under the wonderful pen of Aneke, that's going to pull you deep into a Hyborian age mystery as Valeria confronts her past to forge her path to the future," added editor Mark Basso. "It's going to be like nothing you've seen yet from Marvel's CONAN comics."

Don't miss the start of what is sure to be an all-new classic – AGE OF CONAN: VALERIA #1 hits comic shops this August!

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
