    One of the best things about Marvel taking back the Conan the Barbarian license is the equal opportunity focus on the women of his world, starting with Tini Howard and Kate Niemczyk’s “Age of Conan: Bêlit” miniseries, and now Meredith Finch and Aneke’s origin story for the swashbuckling Valeria. We are proud to present an exclusive preview of the first chapter of the five-issue series, out next week.

    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!

    Thanks to Marvel for the preview, and be sure to pick a copy next week!
