  1. Great episode! You know, I really need to get some Savage Sword of Conan issues and just read them. I read stacks of them 30 years ago that belonged to my then-brother-in-law, but it’s been a LONG time. I didn’t enjoy them as much as I should have, because I was a super hero snob. But now, I just appreciate a good, tight, well-told story. And my more cynical, older nature appreciates Conan’s “direct approach” too.

    This one looks and sounds fantastic. Colan’s art is fantastic (of course), and Earl Norem on barbarian heroes hits me in the feels due to his work on He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.

    Always nice to hear from Mike! Fun show!


  2. Thanks for another enjoyable episode. I loved the story you covered, but came away from it feeling really sorry for Conan. Does he ever meet anyone who doesn’t end up stabbing him in the back? I’d offer to be his friend, but he wouldn’t like me, because I’m too educated and weak. 🙁
