  1. I didn't mind the extra length of this episode at all, fellas. I think when you're dealing with a character who has such an extensive history as Conan does, an hour an a half is justified.

    I would have liked to hear opinions on Conan in comic books. My introduction to the character was through the Marvel comic series way back in the day when it was written by Roy Thomas and gorgeously illustrated by Barry Smith.

  2. Good show guys! Your assessment of the films is pretty interesting.Personally the stupid thief character from Conan the Destroyer just about ruined that film for me. I don't need any comic relief in my Conan! When will someone make a film from the original material? Makes too much sense I guess. The art of Conan would be another topic of interest. Artists like Barry Smith, John Buscema and the greatest of all time Mr. Frazetta all deserve a shout out for bringing this character to life for so many of us.
