The new Savage Sword of Conan series launched earlier this month, joining Jason Aaron, Mahmud Asrar and Esad Ribic's Conan the Barbarian as Marvel's second ongoing comic starring Robert E. Howard's famous barbarian. Earlier this week, it was announced that the character will star in a third series as well, Savage Avengers, which will see what happens when Conan stands alongside some of Marvel's more violent superheroes to form a new Avengers team.
Introduced in 1932 in a series of sword-and-sorcery stories published in Weird Tales, Conan made his Marvel Comics debut in 1970 in Conan the Barbarian, by Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor-Smith. The popularity of that title soon spawned the Savage Sword of Conan black-and-white magazine and a daily newspaper comic strip, as well as subsequent series like King Conan/Conan the King, Conan the Adventurer and Conan the Savage.
