This December, Marvel launches Conan: the Serpent War, a miniseries that will not only the characters of Howard, as Conan, Solomon Kane and Black Agnes together, but will also be involved Moon Knight, the next protagonist of the Marvel TV series, the namesake for the Disney+.
The four issues of the miniseries which will see a story with different time travel will be written by Jim Zub with art by Scot Eaton, Stephen Segovia, and others.
“Serpent War is an epic, intricate and cross-dimensional, which brings together legendary characters from the mind of Robert E. Howard, with a little bit of insanity, Marvel added to counterbalance,” said Zub to Comicbook.com, which announced the mini-series. “The story I told in [Savage Sword of Conan was a simple tale of sword & sorcery. This is great, ambitious, adventurous, and on a stage more spacious. I hope that Serpent War involving the fans of Conan for a long time and bring also new readers on board to understand what is causing all the excitement.”
“As many of the superhero comics that I write, Serpent War has deep ties with the stories of Marvel's past and advances the ball thinking about the continuity, but also has all the necessary pieces to new readers to climb on board,” said Zub. “At the end of the Serpent War, Moon Knight and other characters will be altered in ways that are crucial, and this will certainly have an effect in the future. In addition to saying this, I don't want to be too heavy-handed.”
