Conan the Barbarian - Colossal Edition is live on Zoop

Conan is back, and BIGGER than ever.  Everyone’s favorite Cimmerian has found a new home, with brand new publishing entity, Pan-Universal Galactic Worldwide, or PUG Worldwide.  Spearheaded by industry veterans John Nee, John Barber and Nate Murray, PUG Worldwide is shaking up the comic market with their first release Conan The Barbarian: The Colossal Edition. The book launches today on the crowdfunding platform Zoop. 

The Colossal Edition is the first of many planned, and is PUG’s version of the oversized Artist Edition that fans have grown to love.  The book clocks in at over 190 pages of 11x17 scans of original Conan The Barbarian art from masters and legends, such as John Buscema, Gil Kane, Barry Windsor-Smith, Neal Adams, Howard Chaykin, and many others.  The campaign offers fans the choice between two different covers - one by Jim Lee, and the other by the aforementioned Buscema.

PUG has partnered with licensor Heroic Signatures for the book and is offering the highest quality printing, with book design by Ian Chalgren. The scans are immaculate, the paper will be the finest quality, and the book itself will stand above the rest. This is a book not to be missed.  

Not only that, but the legendary Roy Thomas will be signing limited numbers of the book, while limited numbers of high end art prints will also be available.  The campaign runs for 30 days, and this is fans’ only chance to pick up these exclusive collector’s items!

PUG Founder John Nee states “Conan comics broke artistic boundaries issue after issue, and I’m happy to be a part of presenting that art in a way that highlights its transcendent glory. The only thing I worry about is how the CONAN COLOSSAL EDITION will make all your other books feel self-conscious and sad that they can’t be this amazing!”

Zoop Co-Founder & COO Eric Moss shares "Zoop is incredibly proud to be the trusted host for this campaign. Collecting this hugely influential original Conan art into one beautiful oversized book is an impressive task, and supporters are in for a real treat!"
