“WARRIORS ACROSS TIME DEFY THE ELDER GODS!

JAMES ALLISON will soon die. But it’s not his first death. He’s lived many lives, in many places – lives he can recall in vivid detail. But when an Elder God called the WYRM reaches across time to James, an ages-spanning quest begins! The serpent god SET plans to usher in an eternity of darkness, and only the chosen warriors across time and space have a hope of stopping him: CONAN THE BARBARIAN, SOLOMON KANE, DARK AGNES, and the man known as MOON KNIGHT!

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!”

Conan: Serpent War hits comic stores this December, and you can check out our exclusive preview of the new series on the next slides!

Tiens pourquoi pas.

Tiens, pourquoi.
Qu’est-ce que Moon Knight vient foutre là-dedans ?
Ok, il va avoir prochainement sa série et il faut faire tourner le tambour. Mais bon…
Je suis sûr qu’ils arriveront à faire rentrer un rond dans un carré, mais sur le fond, la pertinence du truc m’échappe. Réunir les personnages d’Howard, why not ? Les mélanger à l’univers à cette occasion, bof.

Il n’y avait pas un personnage lié à un serpent, au moins ?

Ben, ce n’est pas la première fois que Moon Knight affronte Seth…

Tori.

Ça ne change rien au fait que dans une série initialement dédiée aux personnages d’Howard, quel besoin y a-t-il de glisse Moon Knight ?
