I just opened a thread for the Netflix series over in the Comics General/movies section because I didn't see one here.  This has been a long time coming...finally the licenses are consolidated!

 

Technically the licenses aren't "consolidated". Fredrik Malmberg and his production company Pathfinder own the rights to Conan on film. They are the ones who have made the deal with Netflix.

As far as publishing rights Conan is now "public domain" so pretty much anyone can produce comics and books based on the character if they so choose.

Good news nontheless.

"public domain"

Think you might be wrong about this. Characters in the original 1932 story, whether in movies or print, will have no copyright protection after 2028 and the remainder will be in the public domain by 2032. The last of the Howard Conan stories were published in 1936 when Howard died. This assumes the copyrighted works were properly filed.  Later writer’s new Conan characters will still have protection after that. Thoth Amon is almost public!

It also requires, if the stories were published before a certain point, they must have been correctly renewed.  Apparently most of the Conan stories were not renewed.
