If there's one writer - after Robert E Howard himself - most closely tied to the adventures of Conan The Barbarian it's comic book scribe Roy Thomas, who has written the character for decades.
Now he returns to the Cimmerian in Marvel's new line of books, picking up the pen for a new adventure beginning in October's Savage Sword Of Conan #10.
"...the barbarian leads a mysterious band of adventurers into the Himelian Mountains in search of a lost comrade. But Conan may get more than he bargained for as the startling truth behind the quest is uncovered!"And just to make things even more exciting (for me, anyway) is the news that he has teamed-up with one of my favourite artists, Alan Davis, to recount this episode from Conan's life before Howard's People Of The Black Circle.
