AN ALL-NEW QUEST FOR ROBERT E. HOWARD’S VALERIA AS SHE SEEKS TRUTH – AND REVENGE!
Journey into the Hyborian Age with Valeria, the hero from Robert E. Howard’s classic CONAN story “Red Nails,” on an all-new quest set before the fan-favorite tale! Before her careers as a pirate and mercenary and before she crossed paths with the Red Brotherhood and the likes of Conan of Cimmeria, Valeria was a young woman from Aquilonia, seeking justice for a crime gone unpunished. But as the formidable Valeria makes her way in this world, proving her capability against those who doubt her abilities as a young woman, she will find more than she bargained for in her thirst for revenge. Her deadly fighting skills will be put to the test and her trust will be shaken as she hunts her brother’s killer and comes into her own as a force to be reckoned with in the Hyborian Age! Don’t miss the start of an all-new classic, from Meredith Finch (Wonder Woman, SAVAGE SWORD OF CONAN) and Aneke (Red Sonja, DC’s Bombshells)!
Plus: The first chapter of an all-new novella featuring one of CONAN’s greatest nemeses — the wizard THOTH-AMON!

Considering Howard only showed us Thoth once and just mentioned him three or four other times, lots of ground left to cover rather than an origin story. Like what he was doing after he got his ring back and returned to power in Stygia as HOTD mentions.
I would enjoy it if they would do these stories similar to their marvel knights line. A bit more rough around the edges compared to what we got with the steaming pile that AOC Belit was. It would be nice to see Valeria done with a more mature audience in mind rather than to an early teen audience, which AOC Belit seemed to be aimed at.
I agree with you Jason that these should be done as one shots or at the most two parters.
I would especially love to see both these tales of Belit and Valeria done by European writers and artists, and aimed toward a more European audience mentality.
I wish these Age of Conan titles well and would like them to succeed, and I hope Valeria does this.
