Titan Book will be bringing a number of the publisher’s titles for panels at Comic Con this week, including its newest addition with Conan.
If you don’t know, Marvel Comics is once again sans Conan, as the famed barbarian has made his way to Titan Comics. And while that new book won’t launch til some time in 2023, there seems to be a good deal of excitement building for the savage hero’s fresh start.
He’ll be included in Titan’s plans this week too, as go the company’s Comic Con panels. But while he might be the newest inclusion, he’s far from alone, as Titan has a number of presentations planned out.
Also on the docket will be Doctor Who, Blade Runner, a panel centered on concept artist Ron Cobb, and gaming icon PAC-MAN.
