Long before William Wallace, long before Maximus and long before Jesus, there was Conan.
Born into a life of slavery, Conan evolved from gladiator – to conqueror – to King. His stories are told across all lands and they are as violent as they are legendary.
Unarguably, his is one of the greatest stories ever told by man. There is no other hero that can match Conan’s strength and cunning.
Yes, Conan is awesome.
“Hither came Conan, the Cimmerian, black-haired, sullen-eyed, sword in hand, a thief, a reaver, a slayer, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the jeweled thrones of the Earth under his sandalled feet.”
— Robert E. Howard, The Phoenix on the Sword, 1932.
