Brian Wood and Becky Cloonan Team For New ‘Conan The Barbarian’ Series [Preview]

Though it may share a title with this past summer’s critically-panned flop, Dark Horse Comics’ new Conan the Barbarian comic series looks to be anything but. Brian Wood (DMZ, Northlanders) and artist Becky Cloonan (Demo, Pixu) are teaming to adapt Conan creator Robert E. Howard’s Queen of the Black Coast tale. Set to hit shelves on February 8, Conan the Barbarian #1 sees Conan get his sea legs alongside the pirate queen Bêlit and her crew of pillagers as they raid coastal villages, crush their enemies, see them driven before them and so on. If you dig Conan, Wood or Cloonan in any capacity, this comic seems like it has the potential to be what’s best in life. Dark Horse Comics has provided us with several sketches by Cloonan, which tease what the creative team has in store in 2012. Check them out after the jump.
