Marvel Comics is expanding its Conan the Barbarian offerings with the August release of Age of Conan: Valeria #1 from Meredith Finch and Aneke.
In the five-issue mini-series, Valeria tells the tale of the heroine before her “Red Nails” Conan story, in search of revenge throughout the kingdoms of the Hyborian Age.
“Robert E. Howard and the Conan universe have always been ahead of their time in terms of creating strong, empowered female characters, and Valeria is certainly no exception,” shared writer Meredith Finch. “It was my privilege to craft the origin story of such a formidable woman, even by today’s standards. When combined with the fantastical storytelling of Aneke, this is sure to be a book Conan fans new and old won’t be able to put down.”
Age of Conan: Valeria #1 is coming our way in August!
