Conan fans will be happy to hear the news that The Sixth Gun’s Cullen Bunn will take on writing duties for Conan the Slayer beginning in July.

In the first issue of this pulse-pounding new series, Conan finds himself in uncharted territory—on the run!

Alone, battle weary, and with nothing but his sword, Conan of Cimmeria faces his inevitable death in the arid wastes . . . but instead stumbles into a camp of Kozaki raiders. With a knife at his throat and a band of Turanian hunters at his back, will the half-dead barbarian find a new ally in the Kozaki chief?

If you haven’t read Bunn’s Sixth Gun series, you really should as it is a well written tale that clearly defines its world. The writer has also written Deadpool & the Mercs for Money, and Uncanny X-Men for Marvel, and Aquaman and Sinestro for DC.

Teaming with Bunn is Sergio Davila, who will take on the art duties.


Conan the Slayer arrives on July 13th.
