What they’re saying:
- Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski: “Being Marvel, we’re going to celebrate this amazing anniversary of this classic character that’s become such a part of all our lives just like any other Marvel super hero.”
- Editor Mark Basso: “It’s a legacy we’ve been building on since the relaunch in 2019. And one we’re culminating with this special issue.”
- Writer Roy Thomas: "What I wanted to do is get from the first battle Conan had to a time just a few months later when he met the Aesir, which is really about where Conan #1 starts. I thought it would be nice to show what happened just before Conan #1, at least in my mind, with some nice action along the way.”
