Bleeding Cool reported that Jeff Lemire’s Royal City Collection is getting additional content. The article indicates that on July 28, Image Comics will publish a new collection of 2014’s Royal City with 20 pages of story never seen before. When asked about the length of the story, Jeff has said: “Right now I have the series plotted 15-20 issues long. I’m leaving a little room in case things take off. That’s what happened when I wrote Sweet Tooth. I planned for it to be 24 issues, but it turned into 40. You start to introduce side characters and they take off and you explore their stories.”

Newsarama interviewed Jim Zub about this new Conan: Serpent War series. When asked about bringing the Marvel Universe to Conan’s world, Jim said: “I didn’t want to worry about stepping on Gerry Duggan’s toes and the crazy-wonderful works he’s been building in Savage Avengers, so the Conan in Serpent War is from an earlier time and we keep him in the Hyborian Age rather than sending him across multiple times. The threats that manifest in these time periods have their root in the Hyborian Age, so taking care of them requires our heroes to eventually head to Conan’s “turf” and that’s a ton of fun.”
