Marvel Comics Will Bid Farewell To CONAN THE BARBARIAN This Year As License Returns To Original Owners

If you've enjoyed seeing Conan the Barbarian in the Marvel Universe, then you'd best be prepared to bid farewell to the character as Marvel Comics will say goodbye to the iconic hero later this summer...

Marvel Comics has announced that this July, Jason Aaron's King Conan #6 will mark the end of the character's time in the Marvel Universe. Since the publisher acquired the license to feature the iconic hero in its comic books (including Savage Avengers), they've explored the Hyborian Age in a big way, but this is where that ends. Needless to say, that's disappointing, but we saw this coming.

Why? Conan's original owners, Cabinet Entertainment, plan to publish its own stories moving forward, but there are still some collected editions on the way before 2022 reaches its end. 

In Conan the Barbarian Epic Collection: The Original Marvel Years - Vengeance in Asgalun, Roy Thomas, John Buscema, and Howard Chaykin tell the story of Conan the Barbarian and the pirate queen Bêlit as they continue their quest to reclaim her rightful place on the throne of Asgalun.

Then, to finish the year, this December, Marvel will release Conan the Barbarian: The Original Marvel Years Omnibus by Roy Thomas, Sandy Plunkett, Bill Wray, Michael Docherty, Gary Hartle, Sandy Plunkett, Tony Dezuniga, Dave Hoover, E.R. Cruz, John Watkiss, Bill Wray, with covers by Todd McFarlane and Jim Lee. In this collection, Thomas charts a path for Conan that takes him from the shores of the Western Sea to the top of the Mount of Crom and includes fan favourites like Red Sonja.

Various omnibus collections and trade paperbacks are set to drop before then, but these are obviously reprints of old stories rather than new tales featuring the iconic Robert E. Howard creation. As noted, those reach an end in July with Aaron's final issue of King Conan, and it will be interesting seeing what Cabinet Entertainment chooses to do with the character in its own line of comic books moving forward.
