Bleeding Cool has a first look at Jason Aaron and Mahmud Asrar's King Conan #1, with an unlettered preview I bet Jude Terror is bursting at the seams to letter for his own nefarious purposes. But maybe it is worth getting it uncluttered without such satirical barbs aimed at Tom Brevoort's collecting of coffee mugs, or whatever bugbear Jude is obsessed with this quarter. Instead, here is the uncluttered artwork of Mahmud Asrar with colour by Matt Wilson. Open a bottle of shiraz, put your feet up, and be transported to the Late Hyborean Age, with an older, potentially wiser Conan, seeking to turn back the tides, Canute-style. Before long you know those waters will be running the deepest of reds. This story is set later into Conan's life than any other to date, following on from Robert E Howard's description of a bored king, leaving his throne and sailing west to see what he can find. In King Conan #1 we will discover just what that was…
