    I will happily buy this and any other future releases they plan on putting out. I used to have the entire first series plus her 1st appearance in What If but sold them all years ago as I got rid of most of my single issues. It will be nice to re-read them. It was a fun series, DeFalco always does a good job, and the art by Frenz & Oliffe was nice to look at as well. Fun stories, done in a throwback style to classic Marvel super-heroics.

    Well I thought there were more issues. My memory is foggy as I didn't read it month in/out.

    Maybe an Omni will come.

    Apparently Marvel now has the Conan license again?

    Hmm, I was a big fan of Dark Horse's Conan comics, although I admit I haven't been keeping up with them.

    I am interested in the older reprints though.

    I'm not too happy that Disney/Marvel seems to be monopolizing the comics industry lately...

    Great news.
    Conan license belonged to Marvel years ago and i am looking forward to read new comics of Conan by Marvel and the previous Marvel Comic books reprinted in new TPBīs or Omnibuses.

    only thing I worry about is that MArvel has such big IPs to juggle and Conan isn't really one of them at the moment, no movie coming AFAIK so he might just get shafted. While with a smaller publisher like DH he got proper attention. Although I know the Brian Wood series was quite divisive. I'm currently reading Busiek's run and I'm really enjoying it .

    Three Omnibuses would be about right and very nice, but I doubt it will happen. I haven't read the series, but have heard nothing but extremely good things about it.

    I'm not worried much. I've liked how Marvel has handled their licensed properties for the last few years.

    They put their top talent on the Star Wars titles and had good results. They are covering the older material in both Omnibus and Epic format.

    When they got the reprint rights to Master of Kung Fu, they committed to collecting the entire series and Deadly Hands of Kung Fu in omnibus and are starting to release it in Epic also.

    When Marvel originally had the license, they put high quality creators on the title for decades, as well as having spin off magazine, second title, and various graphic novels and other tie ins. There are plenty of top tier writers and artists interested in Conan so that I'm sure we will get an announcement for the new ongoing title soon.

    This will also give Marvel a chance to reprint some of the stories where Conan interacts with the MU, like the What If? issues he appeared in.

    It will be interesting to see if Marvel decides to retain the continuity of the old series (including it's place in the MU).

    Obviously they put effort into Star wars, it's bloody star wars
    As for MoKF it's their property, he is in the main continuity and he can be used in movies or tv series (I think it was also a passion project for someone on the collect. ed. dep. but not sure about this).

    I'm not saying they won't handle it well I just don't see a reason for it unless a creative team really wants to do something with it and they would actively go for it no matter what or if there is a movie in production.

    And personally I want Conan as far away from the MU as possible. He works very well in his own world.

    And Conan is bloody Conan. It's an IP that has an incredibly successful life as a comic. And decades of that was at Marvel.

    But it still required extras cost and effort to get the rights to reprint the Fu Manchu stories. The omnibus releases show that Marvel can take the extra effort and time to do it right. MoKF may be their property, but it's never exactly been a hot title or had a large following. It's certainly much less popular than Star Wars or Conan, but it still got the careful planning and execution instead of half assing it.

    I'm not saying they won't handle it well I just don't see a reason for it unless a creative team really wants to do something with it and they would actively go for it no matter what or if there is a movie in production.

    But Marvel did something with it for decades. They have a proven track record for handling Conan. Do you really think they would spend time and money to get the license if they were then going to half ass it? Do you really think that there are no top notch creative teams that really want to work on Conan?

    As far as the MU connections, they were seldom used and did not detract from the appeal of Conan. I just want to get a collection of the few stories that were in limbo due to the MU elements.

    Out of curiosity, are there any examples of Marvel mishandling characters that are driving your anxiety? Because I'm looking at their track record for the past few years, and there's not anything that gives me real concern.

    you have a point there with them not mishandling their properties lately, I think they had some halfassed attempt with John Carter around the movie but that was public property and Dynamite was doing similarly mediocre things with the character too (also the movie was mishandled too).
    It might be just a sour taste in my mouth that Marvel took something from DH again that DH used pretty well. But maybe DH squeezed everything out of Conan they could.
    I just don't have the sense of victory here lot of people seem to have that the character went back to them.

    That promo picture looks like they are going to pull him in the MU.

    I can only guess that Disney has some movie / TV series planned or they would never have bothered with the comic license.

    I am waaaay behind in modern Conan stories by the DH,so i can not speak about how good they were.(Just bought a couple of floppies issues of Conan by DH a couple of times)
    Having said that when i started Reading comics,Marvel had the license of Conan,and thought it was a cool character that Marvel had.
    Granted i did not buyed that many comics of Conan by Marvel(my comic books budget was not unlimited so i sticked with comics i was collecting more),but the Marvel comics of Conan i bought were cool (Conan stories illustrated by John Buscema comes to mind)
    I do not want to Conan to be a Marvel character that is not used in new stories cough Mirecleman,Angela cough but new licences by Marvel as Star Wars or Shang Chi as Rincewind mentioned makes me think that new Conan stories by Marvel will be good.
    Plus i am a fan of Omnibus,so this news makes me look forward to possible Conan omnibuses reprinting the classic Marvel stories of Conan.

    Good point.
    When Marvel got the Conan license in the 70s they got a top creative team for the stories.
    Roy Thomas was like the second best writer of Marvel (only behind Stan Lee) and John Buscema illustrated lots of Conan stories.
    John Buscema was like the Jim Lee of the time,he was viewed as a top artist,he was illustrating Avengers and illustrating new series as Silver Surfer before illustrating Conan.
