Set in a time before the “Red Nails” Conan story, the series will find Valeria treading the kingdoms of the Hyborian Age in search of revenge. Writer Meredith Finch (Wonder Woman, Savage Sword of Conan) and artist Aneke (Red Sonja, DC’s Bombshells) will helm the story.
"[Creator] 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,” Finch said in a statement. “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."
“Meredith’s crafted a gripping tale, brought to life on the page under the wonderful pen of Aneke, that’s going to pull you deep into a Hyborian age mystery as Valeria confronts her past to forge her path to the future,” editor Mark Basso added. “It’s going to be like nothing you’ve seen yet from Marvel’s Conan comics.”
Finch and Aneke's Age of Conan: Valeria #1 goes on sale in August.
