Jim Zub, Scot Eaton and Stephen Segovia will helm Conan: Serpent War, a four-part event series featuring Moon Knight. The series will also see the addition of two more of Robert E Howard's creations to the Marvel Universe: Dark Agnes and Solomon Kane.
"Agnes is Robert E. Howard's original sword woman, an uncompromising rebel in 16th Century France who fought for her freedom and calls upon bouts of intense fury in combat to overwhelm her foes," Zub told ComicBook.com about the character. "She's quite different from many of the women Conan has interacted with and the way their personalities clash in this story creates some really memorable scenes between them.
In relation to Kane, Zub said, "Solomon Kane is a puritan monster hunter and explorer in the late 16th-early 17th Century whose fighting abilities are as battle-hardened as his faith. I absolutely love the intensity he brings to every scene he's in and the way he pushes himself and his allies to commit to their mission, no matter the cost. In a world of sell-swords and morally-compromised mercenaries, he's a paladin."
