Take to the Seas With Brian Wood and Becky Cloonan’s ‘Conan the Barbarian’ #1 [Preview]

We got a behind-the-scenes look at early art from Brian Wood (DMZ, Northlanders) and artist Becky Cloonan’s (Demo, Pixu) upcoming Conan series back in October, and now, care of Dark Horse Comics, we have even more to show off from Conan the Barbarian #1. Scheduled for a February 8 release, the new ongoing series kicks off with an adaptation of Conan creator Robert E. Howard’s Queen of the Black Coast adventure. Conan’s at his thieving best in the tale, taking what he thinks is temporary refuge on a random ship before deciding the pirate life’s for him alongside a beautiful queen. Though both Wood and Cloonan are revered in part for work that explores youth and contemporary culture, classic Conan fans can count on a fantasy narrative pulled straight out of the Hyborian Age. Read the first six pages of Wood and Cloonan’s take on the barbarian after the cut.

From Dark Horse’s official synopsis:
In this sweeping adaptation of Robert E. Howard’s fan-favorite “Queen of the Black Coast,” Conan turns his back on the civilized world and takes to the high seas alongside the pirate queen Bêlit, setting the stage for an epic of romance, terror, and swashbuckling. This is Conan as you’ve never seen him, with the combination of one of Robert E. Howard’s greatest tales and the most dynamic creative team in comics!
