Announced today at MCM Comic Con London, Robert E. Howard’s swashbuckling heroine, Dark Agnes, will helm her very first comic series! Dark Agnes will be making her Marvel Comics debut this December in CONAN: SERPENT WAR.
The five-issue limited series will depict the journey of Agnes de Chastillon as she frees herself from an arranged marriage to live the dangerous life of a sellsword.
“Agnes is the unsung anti-hero of Robert E. Howard’s legendary body of work. She’s a swashbuckling, musket wielding, doublet wearing bad ass swordswoman from the early Renaissance. A fierce warrior, a stalwart friend, and a brutal, unrelenting force in a bloody, chaotic world. Join us for a tale of mystery, adventure, and revenge!”
“It shows that Howard’s heroines equal his heroes in being whirlwind adventurers. We’re certain Becky, Luca and the Marvel team will make this series truly kick ass, befitting Agnes herself.”
Follow Dark Agnes on her epic quest this February!
