The Cimmerian Continues at Ablaze with Man-Eaters of Zamboula

Ablaze has announced the upcoming release of the newest chapter in their expanding library of Robert E. Howard’s The Cimmerian adaptations with writer/artist Gess’ The Cimmerian: The Man-Eaters of Zamboula. The comic launches on July 14.

The Cimmerian in the land of a thousand and one nights!

A crossroads of beliefs, languages and cultures, the mythical trading city of Zamboula is also the scene of many dark legends. Upon paying the city a visit, Conan is warned of the dangers of Aram Baksh’s home. It is said that most of the foreigners who stay there disappear under obscure circumstances…and it is precisely there that the Cimmerian is spending the night. But by lifting the veil on these mysterious cases of kidnappings, the Cimmerian will discover another secret, even more terrible, linked to the whole city of Zamboula…

The Cimmerian: The Man-Eaters of Zamboula #1 will feature cover art by Gess, as well as Yanick Paquette, Moritat, Robin Recht, and Fritz Casas.

In the trenches of World War I, a new kind of superhuman was born.

Formed by secret and illegal chemical weapons, this empowered generation is just starting to come of age. Some fight against injustice, others spread terror.

Now, in 1938, on the eve of War, they have risen to take control of the capital cities of Europe.

Above the law, above human authority, these strange metahumans capture the imaginations of the public even as they baffle scientists with their impossible powers. The battles between them are titanic, legendary, and larger than life.

But a new, even more powerful threat is looming, one that could yet erase them from existence and shift the balance of power, as Europe becomes a battle-ground for different political and ideological factions. It is a time that tests allegiances and forges new alliances.

This is how the superhumans of Europe were born… and this is how they died.
