(sorry for the bad english ... i'm using google translator)
To celebrate Conan's 50 years at Marvel, a publisher will launch, in December this year, a special called Conan King-Size # 1. The project is led by "Rascaly" Roy Thomas and has a creative team to be envied. There will be 5 stories in a single bound and each story will have the following creative pairs:
- Roy Thomas (screenplay) and Steve McNiven (art).
- Kurt Busiek (screenplay) and Pete Woods (art)
- Chris Claremont (screenplay) and Roberto de la Torre (art)
- Steven S. DeKnight (screenplay) and Jesus Saiz (art)
- Kevin Eastman (script and art)
The names are really impressive. Roy, Busiek and Chris Claremont need no comment. Steven S. DeKnight is a rookie at Marvel and is known worldwide for creating the famous Spartacus series. Kevin Eastman, also a Marvel rookie, is simply one of the co-creators of the famous Ninja Turtles.
It is difficult not to feel excited. The arts seen in the Preview below are also eye to eye ....

It certainly looks good , McNiven has a BWS/Kayanan vibe. I was impressed with some issues of Wolverine he did. I tweeted Fredrik it might be an idea for DeKnight to write a TV series as he's taking a stab at Conan in this. If they put out something like this every few months with talent such as this rather than the monthly grind they might tempt me back.
