Forced into an arranged marriage, Agnes de Chastillon took matters into her own violent hands to free herself from the yoke of a life she never wanted. Now, the woman known as Dark Agnes, along with her mercenary partner Etienne Villiers, make their way through 16th Century France as sellswords on their way to join the wars in Italy, where the real money is!While Marvel's future plans for Conan's adventures in the Hyborian Age seem a bit up in the air at the moment (instead concentrating on his role in the main Marvel comics time period - and the 2099 future), the House Of Ideas has plucked another Robert E Howard character from the archives, the lesser-known Dark Agnes, and are giving her her own swashbuckling series.
But when Etienne is captured by the Duke Of Alencon's forces and set for execution, it’s up to Dark Agnes to save the day! But what evil designs are being enacted on Agnes, and will she doom herself by saving Etienne?
An all-new story following up Robert E. Howard’s tales, the swashbuckling saga of Dark Agnes in Marvel Comics starts here!
Off the back of the trans-dimensional mini-series Conan: Serpent War, the first issue of Dark Agnes's five-issue mini-series is due to arrive in February, written by Becky Cloonan, with art by Luca Pizzari, .
