Conan The Barbarian

Lots of growling and howling from homely people, oiled pecs, dancing swords and CG effects. I really enjoyed the Dark Horse Comics' Conan series from 2004 to whenever. Well done. Thoughtful. Kurt Busiek (JLA/Avengers, Astro City) writes and dynamic artists Cary Nord, Thomas Yeates, and Dave Stewart bring the stories to life. Amazon has the first collection here And I like Howard's stories. Conan is more complex than a passing familiarity with the name and the Arnie movie might suggest.

Arnie's movie was entertaining but not necessarily a great adaptation of the source material. The new movie ... I will see it. But will I enjoy it? No rating is given yet, but Conan needs to be R to do the material justice. Rose McGowan does play a witch in the film, which, if it does well, may see her Red Sonja film go back into production. Although, with her and Rodriguez not together, maybe that film will never happen. Ah Hollywood, city of incest and nepotism.
