Fresh Eyes on Old Books #36

And we’re back again. I’ve suffered heartbreak this week at the hands of ASU football, and before the Cardinals stomp what’s left of my soul, I’m going to review some comics. Let’s do this!

Conan The Barbarian #8 from 1971 Oh the Bronze Age… A little less lighthearted than the Silver Age, and nowhere near as gritty as the present.  So we get titles like Conan.  You might remember the Schwarzenneger movie of the same name, but surprise(!)… there was a comic first.  This issue of Conan is exactly what you’d expect it to be, a quest for treasure, an enemy that becomes a friend, and Conan having to run away from someone trying to capture him.  Once you add in … Continue reading
