I decided to do a new appreciation thread that is dedicated to a certain fictional barbarian we all know, namely Conan. I was originally testing the waters in some other threads but I have now decided to give him his own thread if there isn't one already.

By Crom, I'm actually reading 'The Complete Chronicles of Conan' on my Kobo right now. Eeeevery single Robert E Howard Conan story. Just finished Slithering Shadow, now onto The Pool of The Black One.

It's interesting, in the manner of a lot of early-ish fantasy. He does a great job of evoking the idea of a world where every civilization is built upon the bones of those that came before, a bottomless onion of mystery and horror. He kind of seems obsessed with race and genealogy, but so far it hasn't veered into the super-creepy realm of, say, HP Lovecraft, who's like your racist uncle who embarrasses you at family gatherings.

Yeah, I enjoyed the early books and short stories. Wish I could have said the same for the last movie. :smt011

I wouldn't know about Lovecraft. I only read "In The Mountains of Madness", and was so bored by the 300,000 page lead-in to any action that I kind of tuned out, so I didn't get any subtext.

As for Conan, I liked the Arnold movie, thought it was sort of campy fun, terribly acted, but fun, but I haven't read any of the books or comics, so I know very little about the character. Might download some of the books onto one of my e-readers though.

I saw the first Conan movie and then the remake with Jason Momoa. I know people thought the latter was a terrible movie but Momoa did a decent job-too bad it didn't help the rest of the movie unfortunately.

Ah Conan the Adventurer The show was bad and pretty much made on the cheap, but as Janet Weiss sang "I'm a muscle fan."

The remake was certainly better than Conan The Destroyer. That's not hard, but still...

My mother used to read me comics when I was little, and I remember getting one of those department store three pack bags with Iron Man on one side & the Avengers on the other, with this issue-

- in the middle. My mother didn't know Conan from a hole in the wall and she read me the issue.


Needless to say, she told me soon after that I wasn't allowed any more 3 packs with Conan in them. :lol:
