"I'm just grateful to the creative team for making this possible," enthused Conan editor Scott Allie. " We knew that Conan would be a big property for us, but the sincerity with which these guys attacked the job-from cover to letters and everything in between-is what makes the book irresistible. I personally never took on the launch of a new book with as much gravity as I took on Conan, and I've never been so proud of the result."

Allie revealed that the second printing will feature a new variant cover by noted artist J. Scott Campbell, best known for his work on Gen13 and Danger Girl.
