PiercingMetal Thoughts: This is exciting news since the Conan title of years ago was all kinds of awesome. I read the title for a number of years but not since it’s very first issue unfortunately. It was great stuff for sure and even made me look into the original novels that many of the tales were based on. If you are looking for some quality Sword and Sorcery stuff then you should poke around Amazon.com and order some of them up or visit your local library and see what they have as well. That’s all I have to add about this news but as I close up I wonder what you readers think about the news. How do you feel about the return of Conan The Barbarian to the pages of Marvel Comics releases? Chime in down below in the comments and know that I will be keeping tabs on this news. Until we meet again.
