Dark Agnes #1 hits stores from Marvel Comics next week, by Becky Cloonan and Luca Pizzari, answering the outpouring of fan complaints that Marvel simply wasn't milking the Robert E. Howard Conan license nearly enough, with just a half dozen Conan comics published each month.
At least, this one doesn't star Conan himself. Yet. A crossover is always possible.
But Conan would need to travel to 1521 France, and he's currently busy in 2020 Vegas. Which means he's missing out on this execution about to happen to Agnes's pal.
Who has, admittedly, a pretty long list of crimes.
Luckily, Agnes is there in time to impede justice.
Dark Agnes #1 hits stores on Wednesday.
