Marvel announced today that writer (and total badass) Jason Aaron (Thor, Avengers) will be taking the lead on 2019’s Conan the Barbarian series. Marvel quotes Jason as saying–
This opportunity means an awful lot to me, and I’m cherishing every blood-splattered, spider-haunted second of it.
This couldn’t be better news for Conan and Jason Aaron fans alike. Aaron’s current Thor run is thick with mythology and brutal combat — hopefully we’ll see the same energy on the ancient battlefields of Cimmeria.
