Hercules: Fall of an Avenger creative team reunites for a new Conan miniseries from Dark Horse Comics.

From the press release:

CONANTPBC #1 FC FNLIn Conan and the People of the Black Circle, a four-issue miniseries set a decade after the current Conan ongoing series, fans will find Conan like they’ve never seen him—fully painted by Olivetti!

‘I’m thrilled to be working from one of the best Conan stories Howard ever wrote, with the most interesting female lead and one of the Cimmerian’s most compelling adversaries,’ stated [writer Fred Van Lente]. ‘But what I’m most excited about is seeing what Ariel Olivetti does with my scripts—he was born to draw Conan, and his painted artwork should attract anyone who doesn’t know anything about Conan or Robert E. Howard but just loves things that are awesome.’

Assassins, dark magic, and a beautiful noblewoman mean trouble for the Cimmerian barbarian unlike he’s ever seen in this full-tilt escapade through the mountains of Afghulistan!

Conan and the People of the Black Circle #1 is on sale October 16 in comic shops everywhere.
