A couple of days ago, Marvel announced that Conan The Barbarian wasn’t the only Robert E. Howard character that would appear in their comics. Unlike Conan, who started with his own title before mixing it up with the Marvel Universe, Solomon Kane and Dark Agnes will be meeting up with a Marvel hero right away. The Howard characters will be teaming up with Moon Knight in the Conan: Serpent War mini-series.
Each of the four character comes from a different time period and will involve the elder god Wyrm and the serpent god Set. The 4-issue series will start in December and will be written by Jim Zub (who worked on the Avengers: No Road Home series which brought Conan into the Marvel Universe), with art by Scot Eaton and Stephen Segovia.

In an unprecedented comics event, Robert E. Howard’s characters join forces along with Marvel’s Moon Knight, in an all-new saga built on REH and Marvel lore from across the ages!”
